Title: SAGE -- Software for Algebra and Geometry Experimentation

William Stein, University of California San Diego

Abstract: SAGE is free and open software that supports research
and teaching in algebra, geometry, number theory, cryptography,
etc. SAGE INCLUDES the following software, though much more
(ongoing) work is needed to smoothly blend these into a
single system: Gap, Maxima, Singular, PARI, mwrank, NTL,
Numeric, and Python. In this talk I will explain what
makes SAGE so cool, and illustrate SAGE with some examples that
involve explicit verification of the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer
Conjecture.
