What is Risa/Asir Journal?

"Risa/Asir Journal" (English edition/Japanese edition) is founded in 2006 and is published one volume per year under the editorship of "Computational mathematics promotion association". It is published both in paper form and in electronic form. Electronic form is the main distribution format and only a few copies are printed in the paper form. It serves for publishing original articles not only in traditional form but also in multi-media concerning the study of computational mathematics.
Any interesting article related to mathematical software is welcome. Topics include but are not limited to:

  1. Articles on new packages for Risa/Asir.
  2. Computational mathematics related to developements of an open source computer mathematics system Risa/Asir.
  3. Software engineering problems for mathematical software systems.
  4. Mathematics and media (including user interfaces).
  5. Applications of mathematical software systems.
  6. Expository articles for Risa/Asir.
