Detailed description of research 
Symbolic Computation
The goal in this research is to find new computer algorithms that can compute exact answers for all kinds of mathematical problems. This is different from numerical mathematics in the sense that these algorithms compute with formulas and exact mathematical expressions instead of with numbers.
Most of the algorithms I have developed are for finding exact solutions for differential equations and also for computing with algebraic curves.
