The Third International Workshop
on Computer Algebra
in Scientific Computing


October 5 - 9, 2000
Samarkand State University
Samarkand, Uzbekistan

First Announcement and Call for Papers
The methods of scientific computing play an important role in research and engineering applications in the field of the natural and engineering sciences.
The importance of computer algebra methods and systems for scientific computing has increased considerably in recent times. During the last decade a new generation of general-purpose computer algebra systems such as Mathematica, Maple, MuPAD, Reduce and Axiom have been developed. They enable the user to solve the following three important tasks within a uniform framework:
  • symbolic manipulations
  • numerical computations
  • visualization

Further development of such systems, including their adaptation to parallel environments, puts them at the forefront of scientific computing and enables the practical solution of many complex applied problems in the domains of natural sciences and engineering knowledge.

Among the topics of CASC are many important questions and methods of scientific computing and the application of computer algebra, such as
  • computer algebra and approximate computations
  • numerical simulations using computer algebra systems
  • parallel symbolic-numeric computations
  • problem-solving environments
  • symbolic-numeric interface
  • internet accessible symbolic and numeric computations
  • construction of approximate solutions of ordinary differential equations and dynamical systems
  • symbolic-numeric methods for differential-algebraic equations
  • computer algebra analysis of partial differential equations
  • algebraic methods for nonlinear polynomial equations and inequalities
  • algorithms in computer algebra and their complexity
  • applications in natural sciences

The workshop is intended to provide a forum for researchers and engineers in the fields of mathematics, computer science, numerical analysis, etc. An important goal is to unite specialists in all these areas for the purpose of finding efficient solutions to many current questions and problems in advanced scientific computing.
