# Macaulay computer algebra system

**Macaulay** is a

computer algebra system for doing

polynomial computations, particularly

Grobner basis calculations. Macaulay is designed for solving problems in

algebraic geometry and has a quite simple syntax, often described as "algebraic machine language". Two incarnations exist, Macaulay and Macaulay2.

Macaulay is freely downloadable with source, and is available for Macintosh, Linux, and Windows.

Macaulay2 is a rewrite of Macaulay and is published under the GPL.
