Sage: Unifying Mathematical Software for Scientists,
Engineers, and Mathematicians
\end{center}
\mbox{}\vspace{4ex}
\mypar{}Sage is comprehensive unified open source software for
mathematical and scientific computing that builds on high-quality
mainstream methodologies and tools. This proposal would further the
development of Sage by funding a series of three Sage Days workshops
per year. The primary thrust of these workshops would be to improve
the usability and value of Sage for scientists, engineers, and
mathematicians, and especially as a tool to support research and
education by undergraduate and graduate students. Morever, many
graduate students would receive funding via their involvement in the
workshops.

\noindent{\bf Intellectual Merit:}
\mypar{}Sage has the potential to have a transformative impact on the
computational sciences, by helping to set a high standard for
reproducible computational research and peer reviewed publication of
code. Sage excels at supporting cutting edge research
in a broad range of areas of computational mathematics, ranging from
applied numerical computation to the most abstract realms of number
theory.
\vspace{6ex}
\noindent{\bf Broader Impact:}
\mypar{}All data and software that comes out of this project will be
made freely available over the Internet. This will result in tools
that may transform how researchers in mathematics share and
manipulate their data and collaborate.
