## Machines used

eno: (a binary of Sage 4.0.1-rc1 is available at /home/wbhart/sage-4.0.1.rc1/sage on eno) (a script to stop background processes for benchmarking purposes is available at /home/wbhart/script - but please stop it when done)

`4-core: model name      : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU    Q6600  @ 2.40GHz`

## Benchmarks

* Large degree polynomial multiplication modulo n (Sage is three times as fast).

# ....But Magma has the following features which Sage doesn't have (yet)

* fast and correct multivariate polynomial factorisation algorithm

* fast Gröbner basis computations mod p (p > 2, p prime) and QQ

* fast GCD of multivariate polynomials
