When the noise gets too much (when they are drilling), talking in my office
could become impossible. In such situations you may find me in the Dirac library
instead of in my office, even during office hours. I apologize for the inconvenience.
- Office hours: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday. 10 - 11. You can also visit my office
during other hours, but send me an e-mail first to make an appointment to make sure I'll
be in my office.

You do not need a text book for this course because all documents
will be placed on the web. Symbolic integration will be a large part of this
course. If you want a text book on symbolic integration then take
Symbolic
Integration I. This is an excellent book, it is very clear, and it is written by someone
who played an essential role in the development of symbolic integration.
If you would like to learn other topics in
computer algebra then I highly recommend:
Modern
Computer Algebra, which is a pleasure to read, contains all the right
topics, it is the best general book to study computer algebra.
documents from the previous course, click
on this link if you want to see Maple documents on the following
topics: FFT algorithm, gcd's, p-adic numbers, Hensel lifting, Chinese remainder
theorem, resultants, roots of polynomials, solving systems of equations,
how to factor polynomials, polynomial ideals, Groebner basis and applications
of Groebner basis.
