Computer algebra is crucial to many applications in mathematics and science. At Plymouth University the students are taught and can download the Maple computer algebra system from Maplesoft. Computer algebra is also important for research into mathematics. For example, next week, Dr. Daniel Robertz from the CMS at Plymouth is participating in the conference “Applications of Computer Algebra” in Kassel, Germany.

He is presenting talks in the two sessions:

- Algebraic and Algorithmic Aspects of Differential and Integral Operators
- Difference Computer Algebra and its Applications
