    28 Overview of Singular
    29 ====================
    30 Singular is a special-purpose computer algebra system for commutative
    31 algebra and algebraic geometry. The main features of Singular are:
    32 
    33  * Computations in very general rings (polynomial rings, localizations
    34    of rings at a prime ideal, tensor products of rings) over many
    35    ground fields (rational numbers, mod p numbers, Galois fields,
    36    transcendental/algebraic extensions) and monomial orderings (all
    37    standard monomial orderings, including matrix orderings)
    38 
    39  * Very fast standard (resp. Groebner) bases computations
    40 
    41  * Polynomial factorization, resultant, and gcd computations
    42 
    43  * Large variety of implemented related algorithm: FGLM,
    44    Hilbert-driven, Factorizing Buchberger; Minimal resolutions,
    45    Primary decomposition; Usual ideal theoretic operations; standard
    46    combinatorial algorithms.
    47 
    48  * Efficient and flexible communication links based on the MP
    49    protocol and library
    50 
    51  * Easy-to-use, command-driven user-interface
    52 
    53  * Intuitive, C-like programming language
    54 
    55  * Extensive libraries of procedures, written in Singular's
    56    programming language
    57 
    58  * Written in C/C++. Available as source and binary for some hard- and
    59    software platforms (including most Un*x variants, MS-DOG, MacOS)
    60 
    61 
    62 Distribution of Singular
    63 ========================
    64 The newest version of Singular is always available by anonymous ftp
    65 from
    66              http://www.singular.uni-kl.de
    67 
    68 Binary versions of Singular for common hard- and software
    69 platforms are available.
    70 
    71 Architecture - independent files (such as libraries written in the
    72 Singular programming language, and the Singular documentation) are
    73 distributed as Singular-<version>-share.tar.gz.
    74 
    75 Singular's terminal i/o is most convenient if it is linked with the
    76 GNU readline library.
    77 The GMP library and the readline library is available at
    78 your local GNU mirrors. You have to have these library
    79 already installed, before Singular can be linked with them.
    80 
    81 The MP library library is available from mcs.kent.edu:/pub/MP/
    82 For further information on MP, see also
    83 http://symbolicnet.mcs.kent.edu/areas/protocols/mp.html
    84 
    85 The NTL library (Victor Shoup) is recommended.
    86 It is avavailable from http://www.shoup.net.
    87 
    88 The factory and libfac library are available from
    89 ftp://www.mathematik.uni-kl.de:/pub/Math/Singular/src
    90

    94 More and up-to-date information about Singular is always available
    95 from
