Warm-up drills and tips for mathematical software. (English) Zbl 1306.13001

Hibi, Takayuki (ed.), Gröbner bases. Statistics and software systems. Transl. from the Japanese. Tokyo: Springer (ISBN 978-4-431-54573-6/hbk; 978-4-431-54574-3/ebook). 55-106 (2013).
Summary: In Chap. 1, we studied the basic theory of Gröbner bases. Our goal is to use mathematical software to further our research. In this chapter, we will begin with warm-up drills in order to learn the basic ideas necessary for using mathematical software. We will use MathLibre, a mathematical software environment. It is a collection of mathematical software and free documents which form a kind of Live Linux system. The Linux operating system is compatible with UNIX, and many mathematical research systems have been developed on a UNIX system. It is thus important to know the command line interface, Emacs editor, and the fundamental ideas of the UNIX environment. If you are already familiar with this environment, you can skip this chapter; otherwise, please try and enjoy the world of MathLibre.
