About the Software (desing v1.3.1 for Maple)

The software package contains an implementation of Villamayor's algorithm for embedded resolution of singularities of schemes embedded into smooth varieties, where the base field is of characteristic zero. It comes as a precompiled Maple package with the full source code available under the GNU GPL.

desing v1.3.1 is available for:

IMPORTANT: The package requires either the Mgfun package or the mgrobner subpackage of CASA. For more information about the installation of desing, please, take a look at the README file.

Main features of the desing package in version:

REMARK: The version of the Mgfun package, contained in the standard Maple library, contains a bug which makes it unusable for desing. However, the author of Mgfun provides a new revision (2.2 or higher) which is available on his site. When one uses this package with Maple V Release 5, one needs to take care that the path to the new package gets into the `libname' variable in front of the path to the standard Maple library, otherwise the old version is loaded.
