# Welcome to OSCAR

OSCAR is a new computer algebra system. OSCAR features functions for groups, rings, and fields as well as linear and commutative algebra, number theory, algebraic and polyhedral geometry, and more. It is built upon several well established systems for mathematical research joined via the Julia programming language. Have a look at our Architecture page for a detailed overview and at our installation instructions for installing OSCAR.
