After three decades' work, the computer algebra community has implemented many routines that can aid in problem analysis and coding development phases of scientific problem solving. Our multi-university research group (PSEware) aims to facilitate the development of PSE building tools by leveraging multiplatform commercially supported software and languages. The goal of the subgroup group at Drexel is to draw symbolic computation (computer algebra, or CA) out of the "self-contained system" ghetto, into the larger domain of (primarily numeric) problem solving. While some of this work involves the development of new algorithms, systems, or language interfaces, we believe that there's a lot that can be accomplished through the use of existing tools integrated into larger frameworks.
We see several immediate opportunities, including code generation for modelling, or for visualization, and "groupware" with mathematical capabilities. We develop such opportunities through the development of "glue" software for existing systems, and by more thoroughly understanding how to support the nature of the work, from a HCI point of view.
We have developed a few testbed examples to illustrate our approach:
