TWENTY-SECOND HOLIDAY MATHEMATICS SYMPOSIUM
NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY
Between 1963 and 1976, and resuming in 1988, the Department of Mathematical
Sciences at New Mexico State University has held a series of annual symposia
during the winter recess. In 1997 the series continued with
EDWARD GREEN and DEREK HOLT
REWRITING TECHNIQUES AND NONCOMMUTATIVE GROEBNER BASES
January 3-7, 1997
Complete lectures notes for all ten of the main lectures
notes can be downloaded from this web page.
In dvi format, Edward Green's
lectures and Derek Holt's lectures
may be viewed here; postscript versions of
Green's and Holt's
lecture notes may also be downloaded.
The titles and abstracts of all of the talks presented
at the Symposium are also available
We also collected electronic versions of some of the papers
presented at the conference to make them readily accessible
on this web page.
- D. Cohen, String rewriting and homology of monoids
- W. Helton and M. Stankus, Computer assistance in discovering
formulas and theorems in system engineering
(plus other papers, in
Helton's home page).
- S. Hermiller and M. Shapiro, Rewriting systems and geometric
- B. Keller, Alternatives in
Groebner basis systems (along with more information, in
Keller's home page).
- E. Lo, A polycyclic quotient algorithm
- G. Ostheimer, Algorithms for polycyclic by finite groups
- J. Wavrik, Rewrite rules and simplification of matrix expressions
To contact any of the Holiday Symposium participants, here
are their names and addresses.
