What is this site?
are the ways of computer algebra systems? What is in store
Will you see at this site a tragedy, a comedy, and maybe even
What is this site, this Chapter 1 of 15, really?
An introduction, an invitation, a stage, a crucible, a proof
ground, the tip of the iceberg.
This site is an introduction to a computer algebra system
of that time of the XXI century when Maple, Mathematica, MuPAD,
and Derive will coevolve into new delectable Systems which
will emerge and catharize us from deformity and pseudo-math
trash we see now so often in outputs of most of modern computer
algebra systems. Then, lost in admiration, we will use these
systems delighted with its Beauty.
This site is an invitation. While I am writing
these lines, the wizards of IBM,
and maybe young unknown me engineering geniuses in labs are
racking their brains with 64 dollar performance improvement
questions pioneering new grounds for computer algebra systems.
I invite researchers who surpass me in skills as well as my
compeers to think how we can make the best use of upcoming
huge hardware potential and give not it to get dissipated
grotesquely to handle our own ill-designed and bad-implemented
This site is a stage, too. At this site,
for the first time in history, Cinderella of quality assurance
will change into a Princess who will share Her spells with
Architects and Developers.
This site is a crucible in which having melted,
the good old computer algebra will give birth to a new generation
of computer algebra systems in the process of zone melting.
This site is also a proof ground on which novel software testing
ideas will experience baptism of fire.
Computational instinct gives me a vague, difficult to express
feeling that in the process of deploying of the site some
unexpected stuff will be introduced thus making the site something
like the tip of the iceberg.
Last but not least. This site is launched
to inspire the reader and show what a single person armed
with an idea can do.
Let's start with a cursory sketch of analysis of math correctness
of commercial general purpose computer algebra systems.

Picture of F/A-18C Hornet Breaking The Sound Barrier
- Wanna see a sonic boom?
Through the viewfinder of his camera, Ensign John Gay could see the fighter
plane drop from the sky heading toward the port side of the aircraft carrier
Constellation. At 1,000 feet, the pilot drops the F/A-18C Hornet to increase
his speed to 750 mph, vapor flickering off the curved surfaces of the
plane. In the precise moment a cloud in the shape of a farm-fresh egg
forms around the Hornet 200 yards from the carrier, its engines rippling
the Pacific Ocean just 75 feet below, Gay hears an explosion and snaps
his camera shutter once. "I clicked the same time I heard the boom,
and I knew I had it", Gay said. What he had was a technically meticulous
depiction of the sound barrier being broken July 7, 1999, somewhere on
the Pacific between Hawaii and Japan. Sports Illustrated, Brills Content,
and Life ran the photo. The photo recently took first prize in the science
and technology division in the World Press Photo 2000 contest, which drew
more than 42,000 entries worldwide.
