Abstract

The goal of the project Human Interaction in Symbolic Computing (HISC) which took place in 1994–1995 at the Research Institute for Applications of Computer Algebra (RIACA) in Amsterdam was to investigate a variety of techniques and paradigms which could lead to better user interfaces to symbolic-computation systems (current and future).

Keywords

User Interface Computer Algebra Symbolic Computation Computer Algebra System Direct Manipulation 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
