Kan/sm1 (1991--2003) is a system for computing in the ring of differential operators D (and difference operators, ...).


The latest version of kan/sm1 is obtainable as a part of the OpenXM package. Access to the OpenXM home page to download the OpenXM package . After downloading, build the system following the instruction included. The system "sm1" will be built under OpenXM/bin. The system has been tested on cygwin (windows), Debian, and FreeBSD.
