Hi, I'm a Maxima user but I'm considering to start using SageMath. I need to work with Dirac matrices and there is a nice package for Maxima in this area. Is is possible to load a Maxima package into SageMath and use it ?

Thanks

Alfonso

The package you have in mind is probably Dirac3 by Ted Woollett, right?

To answer strictly the questions, there are limitations regarding evaluating maxima code inside sagemath. See also http://doc.sagemath.org/html/en/refer... . (Maxima needs interactive answers sometimes, in these cases there are problems. But building simple objects always works.) Which special constructions of the Dirac3 package are needed?! (Unfortunately, i could not find the Dirac3 package, and maxima code is no longer readable for me, although i used it for more than five years for teaching purposes, but only in connections with limits, integrals, transforms, and algebraic equations.)
