The University of Stirling

SICSA is supporting the Stirling Computational Math Day, taking place on 21 August 2019 at the University of Stirling

The meeting brings together mathematicians and computer scientists, mainly from Scotland, to discuss recent developments in computational mathematics and spark new collaborations. We are specifically aiming at researchers in computer algebra and computational mathematics, as well as scientists from other relevant areas and application domains. In computational mathematics, computer algebra has become a lively independent discipline and significantly influenced the research in many scientific fields. As computer algebra systems are playing greater roles in more and more application domains, the landscape and sphere of computer algebra is also evolving. For example, by combining techniques from computer algebra with tools from numerical computation, symbolic-numeric algorithms have been developed for problems until recently were yet solvable by either numerical or symbolic methods alone. Such developments have connected computer algebra researchers to other research communities and led to many interesting applications in science and engineering. This workshop aim to present some of the latest developments in computer algebra, computational mathematics and optimisation. We focus on the connections between these subjects and their impacts on other domains, in the hope of identifying promising future research directions.
