Title: SAGE: Software for Algebra and Geometry Experimentation
Speaker: William Stein
The goal of SAGE is to create a FREE OPEN SOURCE high quality software
environment for research and experimentation in algebra, geometry, numerical
computation, and related areas. The speaker started SAGE in 2005 by combining
together the very best of existing free software (e.g., Singular, PARI, GAP,
Maxima, GMP, etc), creating interfaces to non-free software (e.g., MAGMA,
Maple, MATLAB, Mathematica), and beginning to fill in the gaps with new code.
Now over 30 developers have joined him (many are UW undergrads!) in working on
filling these gaps and making SAGE a polished and efficient piece of software.
Come find out how you can contribute.
