Description
/Macaulay2/ is a software system devoted to supporting research in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. Its creation and development have been funded by the National Science Foundation since 1992. /Macaulay2/ includes core algorithms for computing Gröbner bases and graded or multi-graded free resolutions of modules over quotient rings of graded or multi-graded polynomial rings with a monomial ordering. The core algorithms are accessible through a versatile high level interpreted user language with a powerful debugger supporting the creation of new classes of mathematical objects and the installation of methods for computing specifically with them. /Macaulay2/ can compute Betti numbers, Ext, cohomology of coherent sheaves on projective varieties, primary decomposition of ideals, integral closure of rings, and more. The goal of the workshop was to work at improving and augmenting the functionality of some of the existing packages. Likely projects included computing sheaf cohomology, intersection theory, and enumerative geometry.
