GAP (Groups, Algorithms, Programs) (Version 4.4.12: Dec 2008)
GAP: – Groups, Algorithms, Programming – a system for computational discrete algebra, with particular emphasis on Computational Group Theory. GAP provides a programming language, a library of thousands of functions implementing algebraic algorithms written in the GAP language as well as large data libraries of algebraic objects. See also the overview and the description of the mathematical capabilities. GAP is used in research and teaching for studying groups and their representations, rings, vector spaces, algebras, combinatorial structures, and more. The system, including source, is distributed freely. Coordinated by CIRCA at St. Andrews, UK.
At Scientek Inc. — This venerable computer algebra system, in an obvious sense probably the first commercial such, went out of business: but it’s back at version 2.4 in Korea! [See also further information

MATLAB: The MathWorks produces software for technical computing and Model-Based Design for engineers, scientists, mathematicians, and researchers. Our two core products are MATLAB®, used for performing mathematical calculations, analyzing and visualizing data, and writing new software programs; and Simulink®, used for modeling and simulating complex dynamic systems, such as a vehicle’s automatic transmission system. We also produce more than 90 additional tools for specialized tasks such as processing images and signals and analyzing financial data. Since its founding in 1984, The MathWorks has become the leading global provider of software for technical computing and Model-Based Design. Headquartered in Natick, Massachusetts, The MathWorks currently employs more than 2,000 people worldwide.

MAXIMA: a system for the manipulation of symbolic and numerical expressions, including differentiation, integration, Taylor series, Laplace transforms, ordinary differential equations, systems of linear equations, polynomials, and sets, lists, vectors, matrices, and tensors. Maxima yields high precision numeric results by using exact fractions, arbitrary precision integers, and variable precision floating point numbers. Maxima can plot functions and data in two and three dimensions.

It can be used interactively for simple calculations but also provides a full programming language, with a syntax similar to other modern programming languages. implemented in Standard Lisp expressed in an intuitive imperative-style notation called RLISP. The latter is used as a basis for REDUCE’s user-level language.

Lists Available on e-MATH

Several mathematics-related mail lists are run under Majordomo by the AMS on e-MATH, some of which are managed or moderated by someone other than the AMS. For a complete list, send mail to: Enter the word lists as a single-line message. The message subject text is ignored.

To subscribe to one of the lists, called say listname, send a message to containing a single line of the form  subscribe listname

The active list names below are arranged so that, if your browser can support this feature, a mail window allowing you to post a message to the list will appear when you click on the list name. This does not subscribe to the list; to do that send the subscription message just explained, for instance by clicking on


Calculus Reform

calc-reform is a discussion list devoted to the reform of curriculum and pedagogy for calculus and elementary linear algebra, including differential equations.


Calculus Reform Digest

calc-reform-digest is a digest form of the above list.

Real Analysis

real-analysis is a discussion group intended to support an exchange of ideas concerning real analysis in one and several variables. Some appropriate topics include continuity, integration, differentiation, topology of Euclidean spaces and real harmonic analysis.

This list is moderated by ( Lee Larson).

Fermat’s Last Theorem

fermat is moderated by Ken Ribet (Department of Mathematics, University of California, Berkeley). It is intended as a discussion group for topics related to Andrew Wiles’ recent proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem.

The following discussion lists are for certain issues in relation to mathematics. These services are provided through e-MATH by the American Mathematical Society to help interested mathematicians to communicate with one another about important current issues.

Graduate Education in Mathematics


Undergraduate Education in Mathematics


K-12 / University Connections in Mathematics


Industrial/Academic Connections in Mathematics


SGML-Math is a discussion group about SGML and its impact on publishing in the mathematical sciences. It is moderated by Paul Grosso of Arbortext Inc. It is part of an AAP-initiated effort to revise the existing SGML/DTD fragment for marking up mathematics so that it can be widely adopted by scholars, software developers, and publishers.

SGML-Tables is a discussion group about the encoding of tabular material in SGML. This is of importance in trying to mark up mathematics. It is moderated by Paul Grosso of Arbortext Inc.

The SAMATH – the Saudi Association for Mathematical Sciences List and MathMagic lists are no longer on e-MATH.

Informatik und Kommunikation – Deutsche Mathematische Gesellschaft

IuK-DMV ist Teil der gemeinsamen Mailing-Liste der Deutschen Mathematiker Vereinigung (DMV), der Deutschen Physikalischen Gesellschaft (DPG), der Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh) und der Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI), die geht auf das Bestreben dieser wissenschaftlichen Fachgesellschaften zurück, auf dem Gebiet der elektronischen Information und Kommunikation (IuK) zu kooperieren.

Subscribieren und Pflege der Adressen
Das Tool Majordomo gestattet Ihnen selbst, sich in den Verteiler IuK-DMV einzutragen (bzw. zu löschen). D.h. auch für die Pflege Ihrer Adressen sind Sie selbst verantwortlich. Z.B., zum eintragen bitte schicken Sie dazu eine Mail an:
Im Body der Mail hat zu stehen:
