Some findings and reccommendations
SIAM report, 1990 of a NSF panel, US Army Research Office support,
•Symbolic computation is part of a key techonology, namely, scientific and engineering computation
• S.C. enhances scientific and engineering productivity
• Applications occur throughout science and engineering. The interplay between fundamental results and technology is an important dynamic of the field.
•Implementation of new results is lagging: many new algorithms that have been discovered over the past decade have been implemented in few, if any, systems.
•To the commercial sector: continue the initial steps to take S.C. software seriously
