The conference will take place from 19 to 24 September
2011 at the LIX
Laboratory of Ecole
Polytechnique, Palaiseau, France.
Scope of the conference
Nowadays, two kinds of mathematical computation systems have met a
great success. Historically, we find numerical computation systems,
such as Matlab, Octave or Scilab. These systems allow for the approximate resolution of
analytic problems, such as the integration of differential equations.
On the other hand, we find symbolic computation systems, such as Mathematica, Maple,
or more recently Sage.
In the MaGiX project, we intend to transpose the
computer algebra spirit of exact mathematical computations to analytic
problems. In order to achieve this goal, techniques from various areas
need to be combined. Besides computer algebra and reliable
computation, we also need an adequate mathematical programming
language which is sufficiently efficient for numerical computations.
Since the ultimate goal is to develop a user friendly and general
purpose system for algebraic and analytic computations, nice user
interfaces are also an important issue.
The MaGiX@LiX conference therefore aims to bring
together developers and users of mathematical software in the areas of
computer algebra, reliable numeric computation, user interfaces and
mathematical programming languages. The conference consists of a
mixture of software demos and talks which provide some of the
scientific background. Most talks are intended to be introductary and
suitable for non experts in the specific areas.
