35Overview of Singular
36====================
37Singular is a special-purpose computer algebra system for commutative
38algebra and algebraic geometry. The main features of Singular are:
39
40 * Computations in very general rings (polynomial rings, localizations
41   of rings at a prime ideal, tensor products of rings) over many
42   ground fields (rational numbers, mod p numbers, Galois fields,
43   transcendental/algebraic extensions) and monomial orderings (all
44   standard monomial orderings, including matrix orderings)
45
46 * Very fast standard (resp. Groebner) bases computations
47
48 * Polynomial factorization, resultant, and gcd computations
49
50 * Large variety of implemented related algorithm: FGLM,
51   Hilbert-driven, Factorizing Buchberger; Minimal resolutions,
52   Primary decomposition; Usual ideal theoretic operations; standard
53   combinatorial algorithms.
54
55 * Efficient and flexible communication links based on the MP
56   protocol and library
57
58 * Easy-to-use, command-driven user-interface
59
60 * Intuitive, C-like programming language
61
62 * Extensive libraries of procedures, written in Singular's
63   programming language
64
65 * Written in C/C++. Available as source and binary for some hard- and
66   software platforms (including most Un*x variants, MS-DOG, MacOS)
67

69Distribution of Singular
70========================
71The newest version of Singular is always available by anonymous ftp
72from
73             www.mathematik.uni-kl.de:/pub/Math/Singular
74
75Binary versions of Singular for common hard- and software
76platforms are contained in the files Singular-1.0.<platform>.gz where
77<platform> is, for example, 'linux', 'SunOS', etc.  See the file
78README.bin for more information about the distribution of Singular
79binaries.
80
81Architecture - independent files (such as libraries written in the
82Singular programming language, and the Singular documentation) are
83distributed as Singular-1.0-share.tar.gz. See the file README.share
84for more information.
85
86In general, Singular is only available as binary program. For
87exceptions, you may contact us at
88        singular@mathematik.uni-kl.de
89
90The source is distributed in two versions:
91  1. A full source distribution of Singular is contained in
92     Singular-full-1.0.tar.gz.  This (gzip'ed and tar'ed) file
93     contains the source code, documentation, and supporting data
94     files for the Singular kernel, and for all add-on packages,
95     i.e. for the GMP, MP, Factory, and Libfac libraries.
96
97  2. A kernel source distribution of Singular can be found in
98     Singular-1.0.tar.gz This (gzip'ed and tar'ed) contains the
99     sources, documentation and supporting data files for Singular,
100     only, i.e., it comes WITHOUT the sources for any of the add-on
101     packages.
102
103
104Documentation to Singular is distributed as:
105Singular-1.0.dvi.gz      - Reference manual in dvi format
106Tutorial.dvi.gz          - Singular tutorial in dvi format
107Singular-1.0.ps.gz       - Reference manual in postscript format
108Tutorial.dvi.gz          - Singular tutorial in postscript format
109singular.hlp.gz          - Reference manual in Info format
110Singular-1.0.html.tar.gz - Reference manual in html format
