AMS Notices article on computational mathematics

February 13, 2012 Leave a comment

There is anĀ  article in the 2012 February issue of the AMS Notices on computational mathematics. The author is one of the lead developers of the Axiom computer algebra system. The idea of ‘literate programming’ is promoted here after identifying the main problems with computational mathematics. It is probably a matter of discussion whether it is really a new science or not, but we probably all agree that there are urgent problems to be tackled.
