The Computer Algebra Group (CAG) at Simon Fraser University began in 1997. Members of the group are primarilly interested in the area known as Computer Algebra or Symbolic Computation. We use and develop software for the Maple and the Magma computer algebra systems. The director of the CAG, Dr. Michael Monagan, is one of the authors of Maple. For more information about the group and our research interests see About Us.
We are currently looking for a PhD student and a Masters student. Please send your CV and a copy of your transcript to Michael Monagan if you are interested.
The department of mathematics offers several courses in computer algebra and related subjects.
- Gröbner Bases, Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry. Currently offered Winter 2014.
- Introduction to Computer Algebra, Next offered Winter 2015.
- Topics in Computer Algebra Next offered Summer 2015.
- Cryptography Next offered Fall 2015.
