ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software (TOMS) is a quarterly scientific journal that aims to disseminate the latest findings of note in the field of numeric, symbolic, algebraic, and geometric computing applications. It has been published since March 1975 by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), a premier scientific and educational society on computer science and computational technology in the USA.
The journal is described as follows on the ACM Digital Library page:
ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software (TOMS) documents the theoretical underpinnings of numeric, symbolic, algebraic, and geometric computing applications. It focuses on analysis and construction of algorithms and programs, and the interaction of programs and architecture. Algorithms documented in TOMS are available as the Collected Algorithms of the ACM in print, on microfiche, on disk, and online.
Authors publishing in ACM TOMS "are required to transfer the copyright to ACM upon acceptance of the algorithm for publication", and ACM subsequently distributes the software under the ACM Software License Agreement, which is free of charge for noncommercial use only .
