QaoS - Algebraic Databases
The KANT Group:
[Institut für Mathematik,
QaoS - Querying Algebraic Objects System new
- QaoS is the successor of Kate, the Kant Database of Number Fields.
- It has been entirely redesigned to fulfil modern demands for accessing large
amounts of pre-computed algebraic data, both comfortably and fast.
- Its modular design promises scalability and extensibilty.
QaoS was implemented under the aspect to establish a common gateway to an
algebraic database via web-browsers and computer algebra systems, such as
KASH, Magma and GAP.
- QaoS is intended to provide data for:
- QaoS is currently keyword driven,
but we soon plan to offer other comfortable query search methods
The QaoS web interface has reached testing status and should be considered early-gamma.
Accessing QaoS from Computer Algebra Systems
The acess of QaoS from computer algebra systems makes it possible to
process the data from Qaos in the systems immediately. The packages for
all systems require that you have curl installed.
Note that the query syntax for all access methods (WWW, KASH3, GAP, Maple) is the same.
- KASH: KASH 2.56 has
the build in functions
You can pick it up from our download page or
- KASH3 will have the build-in functions
for accessing QaoS.
GAP package qaos offers access functions to QaoS.
The latest version can be found here
Maple package QaoS
offers access to the QaoS databases of number fields and transitive groups, see the
installation instructions and a
The latest version can be found here.
Comments and suggestions are most welcome.
Accessing the KANT Database from other Computer Algebra Systems
- GAP4: kantdb.g contains the function
NumberFieldQuery which takes a string of the form mentioned above.
