Abstract

Sage is a collection of mature open source software for mathematics, and new code, all unified into one powerful and easy-to-use package. The mission statement of the Sage project is: "Creating a viable free open source alternative to Magma, Maple, Mathematica and Matlab." More information is available at www.sagemath.org. I will use the Sage notebook (a web interface) to demonstrate the use of Sage for a variety of mathematical problems and comment on its design and future direction.
