Short research visits programme begins

We have already funded several trips under our short research visits programme.

Mark Kambites (Manchester) visited St Andrews on 21-23 April 2015 for the initial planning meeting and discussing further collaboration on implementing a tropical algebra/geometry package for GAP, based on his earlier work with Markus Pfeiffer (St Andrews).

Olexandr Konovalov visited Newcastle University on May 21st, 2015 to meet the members of the algebra research group in Newcastle: (more…)

GAP 4.7.8 release

GAP 4.7.8 release, dated 9th June 2015, is now publicly available. It fixes several bugs reported since the previous release (February 2015), and also includes 2 new and 17 updated GAP packages. Furthermore, this is the first release since the establishing of the official development repository for GAP on GitHub, so it also checks that everything (GAP codebase, release wrapping scripts, infrastructure for regression tests, etc.) has been migrated properly and works as expected.

Please see downloads, release announcement and changes overview for further details.

Welcome to the CoDiMa website

Welcome to the new website of the EPSRC-funded Collaborative Computational Project EP/M022641/1  CoDiMa (CCP in the area of Computational Discrete Mathematics).

CoDiMa is centred on two open source software systems: GAP and SageMath which are widely used for research and teaching in abstract algebra, number theory, cryptography, combinatorics, graph theory, coding theory, optimisation and search, among other areas.

The CCP aims to support the ecosystem of users, extenders and developers of these systems and encourage best practice in their use, and to support the more rapid uptake of new features such as parallel programming support.

The project will run for 5 years starting from March 1st, 2015.
