CoDiMa training plans for early 2020
We are organising two events in January-February 2020:
- The workshop “Tools for Discrete Computational Mathematics” (21-23 January 2020, University of Essex – Colchester Campus)
- Software Carpentry training on SageMath (20-21 February, Lancaster University)
GAP 4.10.2 release
GAP 4.10.2 has been released in June 2019 and can be downloaded from the GAP website here. In addition to updates in the core GAP system, it contains 145 packages, including updated versions of 55 packages from GAP 4.10.1 distribution. A new package redistributed with GAP is MonoidalCategories by Mohamed Barakat, Sebastian Gutsche and Sebastian Posur. It is based on the CAP package and implements monoidal structures for CAP. See the release overview in the Changes manual and the release announcement in the GAP Forum for further details.
GAP training events in Summer 2017
We will run two additional GAP tutorials in the UK this summer:
- GAP tutorial as a part of the Summer School on Finite Geometry in Brighton on 26th-30th June 2017.
- GAP tutorial on August 13th-14th as a satellite event to the Groups St Andrews 2017 in Birmingham. It has independent registration from Groups St Andrews. The deadline for booking discounted accommodation on campus is July 25th, after that it will be only available at standard price subject to availability. See this page for further details and the link to the registration page.
Computational Mathematics with Jupyter
Jointly with the Horizon 2020 OpenDreamKit project, we have organised the workshop “Computational Mathematics with Jupyter”, which took place at the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Edinburgh on 16-20 January 2017. You can find some reports from the workshop here:
- Computational Mathematics with Jupyter by Raniere Silva (Software Sustainability Institute) and Hans Fangohr (University of Southampton)
- Computational Mathematics with Jupyter: Sprint by Raniere Silva (Software Sustainability Institute)
- Storify of #JupyterICMS tweets
Software Carpentry lesson on GAP
Olexandr Konovalov wrote two blog posts about the Software Carpentry lesson on GAP. The first one is “Programming with GAP”, written for the Software Carpentry website and telling how the lesson has been established. The second one is “Publishing Software Carpentry lesson on GAP” which contains more details about the research-like problem on which the lesson is based.
CoDiMa training school is ready to begin!
We are organising the First CoDiMa Training School in Computational Discrete Mathematics, which will take place on November 16th-20th at the University of Manchester. Please see the recently updated school’s page for the programme of the school and further information.
