    The promise shown by pioneering computer algebra routines developed in the 1950s and 1960s has now been fully realised in modern general-purpose packages of high quality. This article outlines a little of the background to mathematical symbolic computation, and gives an example of its use in the automated dynamic modelling of a mechanical system that is common in control.

    Symbolic algebra languages offer an exciting opportunity for the development of online teaching aids which are closer to a textbook format. Some of the facilities developed to support the teaching of control engineering concepts, using Mathematica, are introduced. The type of user-interface facilities that can be created and the ease with which control manipulations can be carried out are presente... View full abstract»

    An environment has been developed in which the computer algebra software Mathematica is used for the analysis of dynamic systems with models constructed through the graphical user interface (GUI) of the simulation software SIMULINK. The SIMULINK models are passed to Mathematica through MATLAB and MathLink programs under the control of a simple GUI. An application is described in which block-orient... View full abstract»

    In order to achieve the best possible control of a particular system, it is clear that as much information about the system as possible should be used when designing the controller. This leads to a controller specifically tailored to the system being controlled. Unfortunately, this is expensive in terms of design time and expertise, and a number of approaches have been suggested to overcome this p... View full abstract»

    The uptake of HCI (human-computer interaction) and usability engineering by software development organisations can be terminally impeded by lack of appreciation of their value, even where ease of use is recognised as important. Descriptions of HCI offerings in terms of activities and methods are not readily comprehensible to managers of software products. Similarly, descriptions of HCI activities ... View full abstract»
