Sage Days (Algorithms in Number Theory and FLINT)

Scientific Organisers: John Cremona, William Hart, Marco Streng, Fredrik Johansson.

Administrative Organisers: Hazel Higgens, Annette Anderson


A Sage Days workshop around the theme of Algorithms in Number Theory and FLINT.

Sage is an Open Source distribution of mathematical software. See http://www.sagemath.org/

FLINT (Fast Library for Number Theory) is a fast Open Source C library for support of computations in Number Theory which is a component of Sage. See http://www.flintlib.org/

See below for further details on the aims of this Sage Days. Please feel free to add additional project suggestions.

Registration and financial support

Registration is now open for this event. NB Registration will close at noon GMT on Friday 9 December.

A limited amount of financial support is available for overseas and UK participants. Please let us know if you require support by indicating this on the registration page.

To register (and request financial support if required) please proceed to "Algorithms in Number Theory and FLINT" on the Warwick MRC registration page:


Registration is free. All participants must register. We can also provide local accommodation if you are providing your own funding. The cost is in the vicinity of £58 per night. The train from BHX to Coventry is only a couple of quid and the bus to Warwick from the train station is also negligible.

Aims of the workshop

  • Present and discuss recent algorithmic developments in Computational Number Theory.
  • Introduce Sage to UK Number Theorists.
  • Introduce Sage to Warwick researchers, postgrads and undergrads.
  • Foster collaborations between UK researchers (including the large Computational Number Theory group at Warwick) and other Sage contributors.

Suggested coding sprints (please feel free to add others to the wiki)

  • Put flint2 into Sage
  • Switch some of the mwrank code to use flint2.
  • Help the Singular developers make better use of flint2.


We wish to acknowledge the support of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council in the UK (EPSRC) for the funding for this conference, made available to us via Warwick University and the Warwick Maths Department.
