Risa/Asir Journal


What is "Journal of Free Mathematical Software"?

"Journal of Free Mathematical Software" (English edition/Japanese edition) will be the next generation of the Risa/Asir journal and will be 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. "Free" means that the source code is open, there is no patent, redistribution is free. Topics include but are not limited to:

  1. Articles on new mathematical software and packages. Packages may require non-free systems, but they themselves must be free.
  2. Computational mathematics related to free mathematical software.
  3. Software engineering problems for mathematical software systems.
  4. Mathematics and media (including user interfaces).
  5. Applications of mathematical software systems.
  6. Expository articles of free mathematical software.
