### A system for computation in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra

### Description

*Macaulay* is a computer algebra system for mathematical computations in algebraic
geometry and commutative algebra. At its core is a carefully tuned implementation
of Grobner basis methods for computing syzygies and manipulating systems of polynomial equations.
*Macaulay's* user base consists largely of academic researchers and graduate
students. It consists of roughly 30,000 lines of C code, documentation, and
contributed scripts in *Macaulay's* command language (which has been dubbed
affectionately by some users as "algebraic machine language").

### Wait!!

It's 2003. That 70's haircut really has to go. While you're at it, are you sure you want this program?
It warms our hearts every time we hear of a diehard *Macaulay* enthusiast,
but even Dave has switched to
*Macaulay 2*.

Mike Stillman and Dan Grayson have undertaken a complete rewrite of *Macaulay*.
