Algorithms and Computation in Mathematics #4: Some Tapas of Computer Algebraby Hans Sterk
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This book arose from a series of courses on computer algebra which were given at Eindhoven Technical University. Its chapters present a variety of topics in computer algebra at an accessible (upper undergraduate/graduate) level with a view towards recent developments. For those wanting to acquaint themselves somewhat further with the material, the book also contains seven 'projects', which could serve as practical sessions related to one or more chapters. The contributions focus on topics like Gröbner bases, real algebraic geometry, Lie algebras, factorisation of polynomials, integer programming, permutation groups, differential equations, coding theory, automatic theorem proving, and polyhedral geometry. This book is a mustread for everybody interested in computer algebra.
Synopsis:This book presents the basic concepts and algorithms of computer algebra using practical examples that illustrate their actual use in symbolic computation. A wide range of topics are presented, including: Groebner bases, real algebraic geometry, lie algebras, factorization of polynomials, integer programming, permutation groups, differential equations, coding theory, automatic theorem proving, and polyhedral geometry. This book is a must read for anyone working in the area of computer algebra, symbolic computation, and computer science.
