    30 Overview of Singular
    31 ====================
    32 Singular is a special-purpose computer algebra system for commutative
    33 algebra and algebraic geometry. The main features of Singular are:
    34 
    35  * Computations in very general rings (polynomial rings, localizations
    36    of rings at a prime ideal, tensor products of rings) over many
    37    ground fields (rational numbers, mod p numbers, Galois fields,
    38    transcendental/algebraic extensions) and monomial orderings (all
    39    standard monomial orderings, including matrix orderings)
    40 
    41  * Very fast standard (resp. Groebner) bases computations
    42 
    43  * Polynomial factorization, resultant, and gcd computations
    44 
    45  * Large variety of implemented related algorithm: FGLM,
    46    Hilbert-driven, Factorizing Buchberger; Minimal resolutions,
    47    Primary decomposition; Usual ideal theoretic operations; standard
    48    combinatorial algorithms.
    49 
    50  * Efficient and flexible communication links based on the MP
    51    protocol and library
    52 
    53  * Easy-to-use, command-driven user-interface
    54 
    55  * Intuitive, C-like programming language
    56 
    57  * Extensive libraries of procedures, written in Singular's
    58    programming language
    59 
    60  * Written in C/C++. Available as source and binary for some hard- and
    61    software platforms (including most Un*x variants, MS-DOG, MacOS)
    62 
    63 
    64 Distribution of Singular
    65 ========================
    66 The newest version of Singular is always available by anonymous ftp
    67 from
    68              www.mathematik.uni-kl.de:/pub/Math/Singular
    69 
    70 Binary versions of Singular for common hard- and software
    71 platforms are contained in the files Singular-1.0.<platform>.gz where
    72 <platform> is, for example, 'linux', 'SunOS', etc.  See the file
    73 README.bin for more information about the distribution of Singular
    74 binaries.
    75 
    76 Architecture - independent files (such as libraries written in the
    77 Singular programming language, and the Singular documentation) are
    78 distributed as Singular-1.0-share.tar.gz. See the file README.share
    79 for more information.
    80 
    81 In general, Singular is only available as binary program. For
    82 exceptions, you may contact us at
    83         singular@mathematik.uni-kl.de
    84 
    85 The source is distributed in two versions:
    86   1. A full source distribution of Singular is contained in
    87      Singular-full-1.0.tar.gz.  This (gzip'ed and tar'ed) file
    88      contains the source code, documentation, and supporting data
    89      files for the Singular kernel, and for all add-on packages,
    90      i.e. for the GMP, MP, Factory, and Libfac libraries.
    91 
    92   2. A kernel source distribution of Singular can be found in
    93      Singular-1.0.tar.gz This (gzip'ed and tar'ed) contains the
    94      sources, documentation and supporting data files for Singular,
    95      only, i.e., it comes WITHOUT the sources for any of the add-on
    96      packages.
    97 
    98 Singular's performance is best, if it is linked with the GNU Multiple
    99 precision library (GMP), instead of the smallgmp library which is
    100 contained in the full source distribution. Furhtermore, Singular's
    101 terminal i/o is most convenient if it is linked with the GNU readline
    102 library.  The GMP library and the readline library is available at
    103 ftp.gnu.ai.mit.edu or its mirrors. You have to have these library
    104 already installed, before Singular can be linked with them. For more
    105 information, see the file README.src contained in this directory.
    106 
    107 The MP library library is avialbale from mcs.kent.edu:/pub/MP/
    108 For further information on MP, see also
    109 http://symbolicnet.mcs.kent.edu/areas/protocols/mp.html
    110 
    111 The factory and libfac library are available from
    112 www.mathematik.uni-kl.de:/pub/Math/
    113 
    114 Documentation to Singular is distributed as:
    115 Singular-1.0.dvi.gz      - Reference manual in dvi format
    116 Tutorial.dvi.gz          - Singular tutorial in dvi format
    117 Singular-1.0.ps.gz       - Reference manual in postscript format
    118 Tutorial.dvi.gz          - Singular tutorial in postscript format
    119 singular.hlp.gz          - Reference manual in Info format
    120 Singular-1.0.html.tar.gz - Reference manual in html format
    121
