Math Dept Computing for Undergrad Coursework

While the Math Department does not maintain any computer labs for undergraduate courses, we do have a machine that can be accessed from other labs on campus. We recommend the ACCEL labs in Carpenter Hall, since they provide the X Windows software needed in order to run software with a graphical interface. You do need to have a Math Department computer account; contact the systems staff to set one up.

To use this system from ACCEL, first log in to a workstation runing Linux. Then use ssh to connect:

ssh -X

Replace username with your Math Department username.

Once logged in, you have access to the Department's specialized mathematical software. To run Maple in graphical mode, type xmaple.
