Workshop at Bhaskaracharya Pratishthana

I recently attended a workshop at Bhaskaracharya Pratishthana. This post is about my experiences during those days. It was held from 27 Jan ’11 to 31 Jan ’11.

About Workshop

CAS Worshop, FOSSME, Bhaskaracharya Pratishthana, Pune.
(CAS = Computer Algebra system
FOSSME = Free Open Source Software for Maths Education)

It was aimed at maths research students & professors on how mathematicians can use open source tools for their research/teaching.

Tools we used 

SAGE, PARI GP, Maxima, GAP.

We worked on thin-clients. 6 terminals 1 server. 2GB RAM is enough for running these maths tools on linux on 6 terminals simultaneously!
