|Computational Algebra Group, University of Sydney|
|A system designed by the Computational Algebra Group, headed by Dr J. J. Cannon, in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sydney, to solve computationally hard problems in algebra, number theory, geometry and combinatorics. Magma provides a mathematically rigorous environment for computing with algebraic and geometric objects. The design of Magma emphasizes structural computation - the ability to construct canonical representations of structures, thereby permitting such operations as membership testing, determination of structural properties and isomorphism testing.|
