New sphere

The update of hardware for sphere went smoothly.  The new machine is faster and we have installed the latest versions of:

  • Magma (version V2.19-7); type magma to run it
  • Mathematica (version 9.0.1); type math (CLI) or mathematica (GUI) to run it
  • Matlab (version R2013a); type matlab to run it

As mentioned before we are negotiating to get the newest version of Maple as well.

There is some free mathematical software on sphere as well:

  • Asymptote, a powerful descriptive vector graphics language; type asy (CLI) or xasy (GUI) to run it
  • Axiom, a general purpose computer algebra system; type axiom to run it
  • Macaulay2, a software system devoted to supporting research in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra; type M2 to run it
  • Sage, a free open-source mathematics software system licensed under the GPL which combines the power of many existing open-source packages into a common Python-based interface and whose mission is to create a viable free open source alternative to Magma, Maple, Mathematica, and Matlab; type sage to run it
The new sphere has over 1TB of scratchspace (space which is NOT BACKED UP, to be used for temporary files only, that may disappear at any time) for users.  Each user has, in additional to their home directory mounted from coxeter, a directory in /DO_NOT_BACK_UP/scratch/<user’s account name>.
