The CAN Expertise Centre has computing facilities that are dedicated to computer algebra. These facilities are accessible via SURFnet, Internet and Datanet. A series of computer algebra systems are installed on the machines: general purpose systems like Aljabr (Macsyma), FORM, Maple, Mathematica, Reduce; and also special purpose systems like DStool, GAP, GB, LiE and Macaulay. CAN tries to get as many computer algebra systems and packages on these machines as possible. At this moment the accessible hardware consists of a multiprocessor Silicon Graphics Challenge and two Silicon Graphics Indigo's with R4000 processors.
