Rooted in the boundary area between mathematics and computer science, computer algebra has evolved as a lively independent discipline and significantly influenced the research in many scientific fields.
This workshop surveys some major achievements of computer algebra and its connections to related scientific areas. Key focuses include both classical and emerging sub-disciplines of computer algebra, such as hybrid symbolic-numeric computation, exact linear algebra, algebraic complexity, polynomial factorization, and sparse interpolation. Besides presenting the latest results, the proposed workshop will assess these achievements and their impacts to other domains, in the hope of identifying promising future research directions.
We will take this occasion to acknowledge Erich Kaltofen's research accomplishments in computer algebra. Besides his many scientific contributions to computer algebra, number theory, and software systems, he has played a crucial role in the formation and development of many of the key emerging sub-disciplines represented here. Several of Kaltofen's key collaborators on these topics will present related results at this meeting.
