The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, September 9.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:


    Sage is a free open-source program that allows (in the style of
    Mathematica or Maple) various types of symbolic manipulation.

    As described on the web page, Sage is built out of nearly 100
    open-source packages and features a unified interface. It can
    be used to study elementary and advanced, pure and applied
    mathematics. This includes a huge range of mathematics,
    including basic algebra, calculus, elementary to very advanced
    number theory, cryptography, numerical computation, commutative
    algebra, group theory, combinatorics, graph theory, exact
    linear algebra and much more. It combines various software
    packages and seamlessly integrates their functionality into a
    common experience. It is well-suited for education and

    The user interface is a notebook in a web browser or the
    command line. Using the notebook, Sage connects either locally
    to your own Sage installation or to a Sage server on the
    network. Inside the Sage notebook you can create embedded
    graphics, beautifully typeset mathematical expressions, add and
    delete input, and share your work across the network.

    Michael Doob will be our presenter.

    Before the break, as this month's RTFM topic, Rob Keizer will
    talk about the tmux(1) command.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

    Please note our *NEW* meeting location for this month: Room 1L08,
    Lockhart Hall, University of Winnipeg, entrance on Ellice Ave.
    between Spence St. and Balmoral St.

    Parking is available on the surrounding streets and in the lots
    on nearby streets.  Look for signage once you're at the building,
    or ask a security guard.
