## Computer Facilities

Prof. Y. Tschinkel started in 2004 a new computer
lab, called Gauss Lab, based on four 32-bit servers (gauss00-gauss03)
to work on issues in algebraic number theory, cryptography, computer
algebra, algebraic, geometry, group theory and mathematical physics.

Modern pure mathematic starts to use more an more
computer technology to solve algebraic problems. For example: The
consideration of a single cubic equation with four variables leads to
a secondary system of equations with 81 equations with 27 variables.
The resulting symmetry group contains 50,000 elements. To discover
correlations in such complex systems needs advanced computing
technology.

The resources of the Gauss Lab were soon exhausted.
The **donation** of four high performance double processor 64-bit
Opteron Server by **SUN Microsystems** (gauss04-gauss07) to the
Mathematics Institute at the end of the year 2004 enabled us to
develop new algorithms using the 64-bit structure of the machines and
to extend in general the use of this kind of computers to work on
issues in pure mathematic. To push the project the Mathematics
Institute spent significant amounts for additional hardware, software
and staff. Results are published in the important journals for pure
mathematic and listed at the webpage mentioned above.
