About these proceedings
The book contains surveys and research papers on mathematical software and algorithms. The common thread is that the field of mathematical applications lies on the border between algebra and geometry. Topics include polyhedral geometry, elimination theory, algebraic surfaces, GrÖ"obner bases, triangulations of point sets and the mutual relationship. This diversity is accompanied by the abundance of available software systems which often handle only special mathematical aspects. Therefore the volumes other focus is on solutions towards the integration of mathematical software systems. This includes low-level and XML based high-level communication channels as well as general frameworks for modular systems.
