The Computer Algebra Group (CAG) at Simon Fraser University began in 1997.
Members of the group are primarilly interested in the area known as
*Computer Algebra* or *Symbolic Computation.*
We use and develop software for the Maple and the Magma computer algebra systems.
The director of the CAG, Dr. Michael Monagan, is one of the authors of Maple.
For more information about the group and our research interests see About Us.

The department of mathematics offers several courses in computer algebra and related subjects.

- Introduction to Computer Algebra [Winter 2017]. Next offered Winter 2019.
- Topics in Computer Algebra [Summer 2017].
- Cryptography [Fall 2015] Next offered Fall 2017.
- Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry [Winter 2016]. Next offered Winter 2018.
