Maxima operator properties

Maxima provides a variety of operator properties to developers including linear, additive, multiplicative, outative, evenfun, oddfun, commutative, symmetric, antisymmetric, nary, lassociative, rassociative.

Linearity and distribution:
A function is additive or multiplicative if the use of addition or multiplication in the function can be distributed out into separate calls. A function is outative if constants can be distributed out, and a function is an oddfun if its sign can be distributed out. Finally, a function is linear if it is both additive and outative.

Input properties:
The operator properties commutative, symmetric, antisymmetric, evenfun, nary, lassociative, and rassociative describe the input properties of a function.
