I am not sure how it is related so Sage, but the download URL is

That said, maxima is shipped with Sage, so if you want to run it without a dedicated download, you can do:

sage -maxima

Hi, how to do the same on a notebook?

As far as I know, there is (currently) no Jupyter kernel for Maxima (there ave been attempst, which were not pursued).

The closest you can get is a suite of %%maxima cells in the Sage jupyter notebook (yes, you can also create a Maxima worksheet in the old Sage notebook, but that's unmaintainable, unmaintained and likely to go soon...). AFAIK, forget graphics (or manually save them to files and recall them rom other celles...).

An alternative I use more and more is an org-mode document. But that entails learning emacs, which is not in the taste of everybody and has a Matterhorn-like learning curve (OTOH, it pulls you very high...).
