This page contains information about the server leibniz.math.isu.edu
This server is designated as a shared server for computationally intensive jobs for the Math department.
UPDATE: Server operating system reinstalled Febrary, 2015. Several changes below.
Operating System: Centos 7 x64
Due to recent changes in NX client and server packages, NoMachine connection is no longer supported and we are now using X2Go to connect to a graphical interface on Leibniz.
Additionally, two new icons have been placed on each persons desktop, "logout" and "numlock-fix". The "logout" icon will log you out immediately (avoiding a buggy logout menu), and the "numlock-fix" icon will activate your numlock in your graphical session (this is due to a bug with the X2Go session not syncing numlock status with the graphical server).
It has a minimal (but growing) collection of free software installed, this is intentional to keep it uncluttered and not have unnecessary software
If there is some software you'd like to see installed, please create a ticket by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Sage Math software is installed and available in a web browser you can login at https://leibniz.cose.isu.edu.
Sage requires a separate account. You will have to request an account to sage you can do that by creating a ticket as in the paragraph above or stop by PS326 and see Thom or Michael.
GAP3 The last release of GAP 3 was 3.4.4 which was announced on April 22, 1997. GAP 3 was frozen in May 2000 with bugfix 13 and will not be developed any further. We are still making it available because not only may there still be some users having private programs written in GAP 3, but also not all funtionality available through GAP 3 has yet been transferred to GAP 4. This is in particular true for some user contributions to GAP 3 such as the 'share packages' CHEVIE, matrix, and some quotient algorithms. from: http://www.gap-system.org/Gap3/status3.html
GAP4 is also installed on the system, for those that would like to transfer to using GAP4.
Other Free and Open Source Software: numpy, scipy, mathplotlib. IDLE and SPE for python development
Licensed software installed on it includes.
