Math Unix Systems Help Pages

The Math Unix Systems (MUSes) is a collection of Linux machines which can be used for running symbolic computation programs (e.g., Mathematica, Magma, Maple, Pari, and many others), mathematical and technical type-setting programs (TEX and troff), and electronic mail. Open computer labs are located in the basement of Coble hall, and in Room 123 Altgeld Hall, while other MUSes are scattered in offices throughout the department. Below is a link to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) regarding the MUSes as well as contact information for the Computer Help Staff.
