Computational Problems on the Web: Introducing SAGE
July 6, 6:00-7:30
F 228
by Dr. Wayne Patterson of
Howard University, Washington DC

Computer algebra, or symbolic computation, has become an invaluable
aid in many fields. Initially, systems to support symbolic computation
were very rudimentary. However, very sophisticated versions have
evolved today: Mathematica, Maple and MatLab to name three major
systems. However, there are many more such systems that have appeared,
often with application oriented towards one or another computational
field. One in particular with a set of advantages is a system called
SAGE. Two particular advantages of SAGE are that it is free, and that
it can be installed on local machines but also run on the Web. In this
presentation, we will introduce SAGE, examine its features, and
explore a particular application in cybersecurity.
