Sage-FLINT Days

Organisers: John Cremona, William Hart, ....

What

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/

Where

Warwick University in the UK (http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/maths/general/institute/)

When

17 - 23rd December 2011 (the formal program will finish on 21st, but participants can remain until 23rd to collaborate and code). The lecture room will be available from 9am until 10pm daily.

Program

* Two invited talks per day (including intro to Sage talks)

* A single evening public lecture

* Coding sprints.

Invited Speakers

TBA.

Registration

TBA. Registration is free.

Support

A limited amount of support is available for overseas and UK participants. Please contact us if you need travel and accommodation support.

Aims of the workshop

* Introduce Sage to UK Number Theorists.

* Introduce Sage to Warwick researchers, postgrads and undergrads.

* Foster collaborations between the large Computational Number Theory and other research groups at Warwick and the Sage project.

* Hold talks on recent algorithmic developments in Computational Number Theory.

* Put flint2 into Sage

* Switch some of the mwrank code to use flint2.

* Help the Singular developers make better use of flint2.
