Abstract:
computer algebra deals with algebraic algorithms which are
available in computer algebra systems like DERIVE, Maple or
Mathematica and also in scientific calculators like the TI89 and
others. In future every high school teacher must be aware that he
has to deal with computer algebra in his work. Also in many
business branches computer algebra plays a more and more important
role. Therefore this lecture is recommended to every Mathematics
student, but also to students of Physics. The lecture is
compulsory for Bachelor Mathematics (Modul BM 6), obligatory for
the application field Computational Mathematics in the Bachelor
Computer Science as well as compulsory for Lehramt Mathematik L3
(Modul MAL 35). Finally the lecture can be used in the module
"Vertiefung in Mathematik/Elektrotechnik" for the Master Computer
Science. The lecture contains basic algorithms and their
backgrounds. In the exercises we work with Mathematica. Here the
internal features are used as well as the embedded programming
language which we use to implement algebraic algorithms.
