I'm doing some work with differential equations, for which Maxima provides the best interface. So I work in notebook cells headed with %maxima. However, I need to use Sage on some of the results. But any new cell (without %maxima) doesn't recognize the variables created in the maxima cell. How do I export "maxima cell" results back into Sage?

See the very similar question about R here.

Cell 1:

%maxima
a:25

Cell 2:

A = maxima('a')._sage_()
A+2

yielding 27. Is this what you are looking for? (Note that if the answer includes any dummy variables like z266 then you may need to make Sage var('z266')-type declarations.)
