Synopsis of my PhD

My PhD work, under the supervision of Professor J. H. Davenport, involved writing a Straight Line Program (SLP) implementation which could be used for representing and manipulating polynomials. The implementation was written in Aldor under the AXIOM computer algebra system environment. Further routines to calculate gcds of polynomials represented as SLPs were written. Much attention was paid to the efficiency of these routines.
