CASC 2001 continues a tradition ~ started in 1998 ~ of international con- ferences on the latest advances in the application of computer algebra systems to the solution of various problems in scientific computing. The three ear- (CASs) lier conferences in this sequence, CASC'98, CASC'99, and CASC 2000, were held, Petersburg, Russia, in Munich, Germany, and in Samarkand, respectively, in St. Uzbekistan, and proved to be very successful. We have to thank the program committee, listed overleaf, for a tremendous job in soliciting and providing reviews for the submitted papers. There were more than three reviews per submission on average. The result of this job is reflected in the present volume, which contains revised versions of the accepted papers. The collection of papers included in the proceedings covers various topics of computer algebra methods, algorithms and software applied to scientific computing. In particular, five papers are devoted to the implementation of the analysis of involutive systems with the aid of CASso The specific examples include new efficient algorithms for the computation of Janet bases for monomial ideals, involutive division, involutive reduction method, etc. A number of papers deal with application of CASs for obtaining and vali- dating new exact solutions to initial and boundary value problems for partial differential equations in mathematical physics. Several papers show how CASs can be used to obtain analytic solutions of initial and boundary value problems for ordinary differential equations and for studying their properties.
