Session 3. Symbolic Summation and Integration (Web Page)


Aim and Scope

The symbolic evaluation of (definite and indefinite) sums and integrals is an important topic in symbolic computation, and it is widely appreciated by users of computer algebra systems. From highschool students, who solve their homework integrals with freely available and easy-to-use tools such as WolframAlpha, to physicists, who employ highly specialized algorithms and software packages for simplifying complicated multi-sums, they all take advantage of the power of computer algebra software. This session is dedicated to the presentation and discussion of new trends in the areas of symbolic summation and symbolic integration, with a special emphasis on newly developed software for evaluating / simplifying sums and integrals, either in an explicit / implicit form or numerically.
