The CASN Demonstration Site

Within the SymbolicData Project the CASN subproject – Computer Algebra Social Network – is a first pitch of a “Facebook like“ communication infrastructure about the scientific activities within the CA community using a modern RDF based "Web 2.0" approach. We refer to our wiki for more information about CASN goal and concepts.

PhD opportunities in Symbolic Computation and Computer Algebra at the University of Waterloo
Created: 2016-10-11.
Abstract: The Symbolic Computation Group (SCG) in the Cheriton School of Computer Science is one of the world’s leading groups in symbolic computation and computer algebra. Research interests includes such topics as sparse interpolation, polynomial and differential systems, exact linear algebra, hybrid symbolic-numeric computation, algebraic complexity, and pen-based math systems. The SCG group was the original home of the Maple Computer Algebra system.

Postdoc Position in Berlin founded by Einstein Foundation
Created: 2016-09-26.
Abstract: The Technical University of Berlin has an opening for a three year postdoc position in mathematics (salary grade E13) starting in 2017. The successful candidate will be part of Berlin Mathematical School and conduct independent research in the Berlin based team of Prof. Felipe Cucker (CityU Hong Kong) and Prof. Peter Burgisser (TU Berlin). The postdoc position is funded by Professor Cucker's Einstein Visiting Fellowship ``Complexity and accuracy of numerical algorithms in algebra and geometry'' and does not involve teaching duties.
We are seeking a postdoc who has already done successful research in one of the areas of complexity theory, applied algebraic geometry, complexity and accuracy of numerical algorithms, and ideally wishes to continue to work in the intersection of these subjects. .
