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.


The following list of academic people working in Computer Algebra is extracted from the SymbolicData CASN People Database.

The CASN Database contains more than 1000 instances of foaf:Person (as of Febr. 2016). In 2014 we identified in a joint effort with ZBMath (Wolfram Sperber) the author strings of 347 persons within the author disambiguation system of the Zentralblatt.

For performance reasons the output is restricted to about 20 entries (100 RDF triples). Use HTTP Get Parameter as in info/people.php?name=G&affil=J to display available information about people with foaf:name containing the string "G" and sd:affiliation containing the string "J". The search is case insensitive.
