First Sage Days in Israel

Einstein Institute of Mathematics, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel

Topics: Combinatorics, Symbolic dynamics

This Sage Days is the first one organized in Israel. The aim of the meeting will be to introduce the software to students and mathematicians in the region, with further emphasis on (but not limited to) combinatorics and symbolic dynamics. It will be a great occasion to learn more about the software and for advanced developers to present and improve current tools.

Organizers: Jean-Philippe Labbé.
