About me Research Publications Students Teaching Talks Links

Professor,
Department of Mathematics,
Simon Fraser University.

My main area of research is computer algebra which is also called symbolic computation. I am interested in devoping and implementing high performance algorithms for computing with (multivarate) polynomials with various kinds of coefficients, e.g., integers and algebraic numbers. With the advent of multi-core computers, it has become necessary to design and implement parallel algorithms. I am coding in Cilk C.

I am also interested in the design of computer algebra systems. I have participated in the design and development of the Maple computer algebra system since 1983 and currently have a joint research project with Maplesoft to design parallel algorithms for multi-core architectures.

I am currently directing our Computational Algebra Group (CAG) and the Centre for Experimental and Constructive Mathematics (CECM). I am currently program co-chair for the PASCO 2017 conference on the design of Parallel Algorithms for Symbolic COmputation. For Spring 2017 I am teaching MATH 158: Calculus II for the Social Sciences and a graduate and senior undergradaute course in Computer Algebra.
