Thomas Markwig Software Workshop Geometry and Combinatorics 2010

From Thursday, February 11, to Sunday, February 14, 2010 there will be a workshop at the mathematical department which focusses on connecting software packages for polyhedral geometry with software packages for Gröbner basis computations and on developing and implementing algorithms in the mathematical areas of tropical and toric geometry.

The workshop will start with a series of talks introducing the software packages and where a wishlist towards the respective other systems will be presented. Afterwards the participants meet to decide in which order to address the problems and to start programming. This will be done in rooms 48-436 and 48-419.

Information on how to reach the department and other useful information can be found via the following link:
