The course documents and assignments

Time: Wednesday and Friday 12:30 - 1:45

Instructor: Dr. Mark VanHoeij

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.
