Open Digital Research Environment Toolkit for the Advancement of Mathematics

Objective

OpenDreamKit will deliver a flexible toolkit enabling research groups
to set up Virtual Research Environments, customised to meet the varied
needs of research projects in pure mathematics and applications and
supporting the full research life-cycle from exploration, through
proof and publication, to archival and sharing of data and code.

OpenDreamKit will be built out of a sustainable ecosystem of
community-developed open software, databases, and services, including
popular tools such as LinBox, MPIR, Sage(sagemath.org), GAP, PariGP,
LMFDB, and Singular. We will extend the Jupyter Notebook environment
to provide a flexible UI. By improving and unifying existing building
blocks, OpenDreamKit will maximise both sustainability and impact,
with beneficiaries extending to scientific computing, physics,
chemistry, biology and more and including researchers, teachers, and
industrial practitioners.

We will define a novel component-based VRE architecture and the adapt
existing mathematical software, databases, and UI components to work
well within it on varied platforms. Interfaces to standard HPC and
grid services will be built in. Our architecture will be informed by
recent research into the sociology of mathematical collaboration, so
as to properly support actual research practice. The ease of set up,
adaptability and global impact will be demonstrated in a variety of
demonstrator VREs.

We will ourselves study the social challenges associated with
large-scale open source code development and of publications based on
executable documents, to ensure sustainability.

OpenDreamKit will be conducted by a Europe-wide demand-steered
collaboration, including leading mathematicians, computational
researchers, and software developers long track record of delivering
innovative open source software solutions for their respective
communities. All produced code and tools will be open source.
