Symbolic Computations based on Grid Services
AbstractThe widespread adoption of the current Grid technologies is still impeded by a number of problems, one of which is difficulty of developing and implementing Grid-enabled applications. In another dimension, symbolic computation, aiming to automatize the steps of mathematical problem solving, has become in the last years a basis for advanced applications in many areas of computer science. In this context we have recently analyzed and developed grid-extensions of known tools for symbolic computations. We further present in this paper a case study of a Web service-based Grid application for symbolic computations.
