Online databases: from L-functions to combinatorics

January 21 to January 25, 2013

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, Palo Alto, California

organized by

Paul-Olivier Dehaye and Nicolas M. Thiery

Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to the development of new software tools for handling mathematical databases. These tools will assist mathematicians in the integration, display, distribution, maintenance and investigation of mathematical data, particularly in the context of the computer algebra system Sage.

Many issues arise from advanced use of mathematical data, and will be tackled in the workshop:

In addition, there are issues tied to the visualization of this data: either to directly assist research or for more educational purposes, along with enough context for an external user to understand it.

The aim of this workshop is to approach these issues from the very general context of Sage, and develop generic and easy-to-use software tools that would be useful for other mathematical disciplines. We will, however, keep two use cases in mind:

In addition to experts from both projects, advanced Sage developers and database experts will also be invited.
