An Introduction

CAGe stands for Computer Algebra Gent and is the nick-name for a joint project of the Department of Mathematical Analysis and the Department of Pure Mathematics and Computer Algebra of the University of Ghent. The project is sponsored by the FGWO and FKFO, the associated funds of the National Fund for Scientific Research (NFWO) Belgium.

CAGe started in 1988 and the first goal was to acquire a broad spectrum of existing Computer Algebra systems and to install them on a network of Unix workstations where they can "communicate" with each other.

The facilities of the CAGe -network on Symbolic Computation are open to other interested research groups both at the RUG and other institutions.
