Rapid advances in computer technology and computer algebra algorithms and software
packages have propelled symbolic analysis into a vibrant and rapidly advancing field that
impacts all areas of computational mathematics. The tools of symbolic analysis are playing
an increasingly essential role in mathematics, physics, computer science, engineering, and
even biological, financial and other applications. Within mathematics, symbolic analysis
has direct bearing on such diverse fields as algebra, differential geometry, differential
equations, combinatorics, mathematical physics, and the design of numerical algorithms.
The purpose of the FoCM Symbolic Analysis Interest Group (SAIG) is to foster the
development of the subject, facilitate interactions among diverse researchers, and to
develop strong links with all areas covered by the Society's activities. To this end SAIG
sponsors an highly successful workshop at the triennial FoCM conferences.
We welcome participation by people with interests in all aspects of symbolic analysis, and
hope to develop this web site into an important nexus that can be used to coordinate
research, conferences, contacts, research announcements and news, links to web pages
and papers, and discussions within the broad symbolic analysis community.
Currently, the SAIG web page contains contact details for people researching, writing
software, applying or simply interested in various aspects of symbolic analysis. A simple
search facility allows you to find people who are expert, interested or involved in the various
resesarch areas. We also have links to relevant software and recent conference websites.
Suggestions for additional items to include in the web page are welcome.
