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.

Michael Monagan, Faculty, Director
My primary research area is symbolic computation.
I am interested in algebraic algorithms and the design
of computer algebra systems like Maple and Magma.
My Homepage

Tian Chen, PhD student
I am interested in algebraic (symbolic) computation.
My current research project is to design and analyze
efficient algorithms for multivariate polynomial factorization.
On the side, I like to read and learn number theory.

Ayoola Jinadu, PhD student
My main research focus is on sparse rational function
interpolation and its application to computing the
determinant of Dixon matrices with polynomial entries.
I am also interested in moment problems.

Garrett Paluck, PhD student
I am currently interested in improving the Hensel
lifting algorithm for factoring polynomials with n>2 factors
over finite fields.

Mahsa Ansari, PhD student

Hyukho Kwon, MSc student
My current research project focuses on fast
algorithms and the tangent Graeffe root finding
method. I am interested in theoretical computing
science and machine learning.

Sophie Grace Hoare, MSc student

Sophie is graduating in June 2023. Congrats Sophie

Archit Srivastava, MSc Student.
I am interested in problems at the intersection
of computer science and mathematics. I am currently
working on Fast Extended Euclidean Algorithm.
