Abstract

SymGrid-Par is a new framework for executing large computer algebra problems on computational Grids. We present the design of SymGrid-Par, which supports multiple computer algebra packages, and hence provides the novel possibility of composing a system using components from different packages. Orchestration of the components on the Grid is provided by a Grid-enabled parallel Haskell (GPH). We present a prototype implementation of a core component of SymGrid-Par, together with promising measurements of two programs on a modest Grid to demonstrate the feasibility of our approach.
