## Risa/Asir

### Summary

Risa/Asir is a general computer algebra system and

also a tool for various computation in mathematics and engineering.

The development of Risa/Asir started in

1989 at FUJITSU. Binaries have been freely available since 1994

and now the source code is also free. Currently Kobe distribution

is the most active branch of its development.

We characterize Risa/Asir as follows:

(1) An environment for large scale and efficient polynomial computation.

(2) A platform for parallel and distributed computation based on OpenXM protocols.
