10IMPORTANT: Please see the COPYING file contained in this directory
11for license information for Singular.
12
13This distribution contains the following subdirectories
14  'share/Singular'      -- contains Singular library files and compute tables
15  'info'                -- contains Singular's info help file
16       
17and the file
18  'COPYING'     -- for licence and copying information information
19  'README'      -- this file

23Installing the Singular executable program
24==========================================
251.) Download the file Singular-1.1.ppc.sea.hqx  or
26    Singular-1.1.68k.sea.hqx depending on your Macintosh version.
27
282.) Expand the downloaded file using a standard Expander (like Compact
29    Pro or StuffIt) to obtain the corresponding self-extracting
30    Singular-1.1.[ppc,68k].sea file.
31
323.) Click on the self-extracting Singular-1.1.[ppc,68k].sea file. This
33    will create a new folder named "Singular" which contains the
34    Singular program.
35
364.) Clicking on the Singular program, starts up the MPW shell. Typing
37    in "Singular" will start the Singular program.

45Overview of Singular
46====================
47Singular is a special-purpose computer algebra system for commutative
48algebra, algebraic geometry and singularity theory. The main features
49of Singular are:
50
51 * Computations in very general rings (polynomial rings, localizations
52   of rings at a prime ideal, tensor products of rings) over many
53   ground fields (rational numbers, mod p numbers, Galois fields,
54   transcendental/algebraic extensions) and monomial orderings (all
55   standard monomial orderings, including matrix orderings)
56
57 * Very fast standard (resp. Groebner) bases computations
58
59 * Polynomial factorization, resultant, and gcd computations
60
61 * Large variety of implemented related algorithm: FGLM,
62   Hilbert-driven, Factorizing Buchberger; Minimal resolutions,
63   Primary decomposition; Usual ideal theoretic operations; standard
64   combinatorial algorithms.
65
66 * Efficient and flexible communication links based on the MP
67   protocol and library
68
69 * Easy-to-use, command-driven user-interface
70
71 * Intuitive, C-like programming language
72
73 * Extensive libraries of procedures, written in Singular's
74   programming language
75
76 * Written in C/C++. Available as binary program for common hard- and
77   software platforms (including most Un*x variants, MS-DOG, MacOS)
