OSCAR Computer Algebra System

The OSCAR project develops a comprehensive Open Source Computer Algebra Research system for computations in algebra, geometry, and number theory, written in Julia. In particular, the emphasis is on supporting complex computations which require a high level of integration of tools from different mathematical areas.

The development of OSCAR is supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG within the Collaborative Research Center TRR 195.

See the About page for more information.

Getting started

For tutorials, see the Tutorials page, where pre-rendered notebooks showcase selected things the software developed in the OSCAR project can already do.

If you wish to contribute to the OSCAR development, see the Installation page for instructions on how to install it, and also check out our community page.

Note that OSCAR has not reached a first public release yet, and its parts should be treated as a technology preview. See the News page for announcements about OSCAR development.

The Book

The book The Computer Algebra System OSCAR presents version 1.0 of OSCAR. It is an invitation to use OSCAR. With discussions of theoretical and algorithmic aspects included, it offers a multitude of explicit code snippets. These are valuable for interested researchers from graduate students through established experts.

Code snippets and list of errata are available on the companion website at https://book.oscar-system.org/
