Computer algebra software at Sydney Mathematics & Statistics


The following computer algebra packages are available on various School systems:

Magma
This computer algebra system, developed by the Computational Algebra Group in the School, is available on the Alpha and Debian systems via the command magma .

On-line help for Magma is available.

Magma is also available on Samba PCs: run L:\win\bin\magma . Startup of the program may be slow over the network.

Maple
There is a 5-user Maple School site licence for Linux. Use the command maple for a command-line interface (help available via "?") or xmaple for a graphics interface (with a help menu). See the manual pages for maple and mint.

Mathematica
The following licences for Mathematica are available in the School:

The on-line help in the graphics interface mathmatica includes the Mathematica book. WRI and the MathSource archive provide information about Mathematica.

REDUCE
There are site licences of versions 3.7, and a Linux "file server" site licence of version 3.8 of REDUCE which cover all School machines. For the latest version, on Linux use the shell command reduce 3.8 ; or for a better interface with a local wrapper use the command redw 3.8 . The shell command reduce help gives information about available options.

HTML help on 3.8 and HTML help on 3.7 are available internally. The manual page is NOT available (with pointers to further documentation). There is a REDUCE Web server in Cologne (note the warning about large images).

Reduce 3.7 is available on Samba PCs: run L:\win\bin\Reduce3.7 . Startup of the program may be slow over the network.
