Crusing the net, I saw this, from SIGSAM home page, annual
report 1995:

>End of November 1993, SIGSAM had a total of 1004 members. End of May
>1995, SIGSAM has a total of 738 members. This decline is somewhat
>higher than the SIG average (36% for SIGSAM and 27% for SIG
>average) and runs counter to the growth of our field in the
>applications and educations sectors.



Is not symbolic algebra a growing field? What do you think then
the decline means? Does it mean much? and why total membership
for SIG also on decline? too much $$ to join?

inquiring minds wan'a know...

thanks,

Nasser
