Programsystemet “sage” er nå installert på alle instituttets maskiner.  I en standardinstallasjon ligger det på /usr/local/bin/sage.  Start programmet ved å skrive “sage” i et terminalvindu.  Når sage starter opp, følg anbefalingen om å skrive “notebook()”, så får du et grafisk grensesnitt (i din nettleser) mot sage og alle de programmer som løper under sage.

More templates and pointers are still welcome.

There are many editors to chose from. Many people prefer Emacs. If you want Emacs to access remote files it will be an advantage to install one of the newer versions of Emacs.
