The KANT Group
Our name, KANT, is short for Computational Algebraic Number Theory with a slight hint at its German origin (Immanuel Kant). KANT is also the name of the sophisticated computer algebra system that has been developed under the project leadership of Prof. Dr. M. E. Pohst. (more about KANT).We are were also involved in various other projects such as SCIEnce, QaoS, and GiANT.
What is KANT/KASH?
KANT is a computer algebra system for sophisticated computations in algebraic number fields that has been developed under the project leadership of Prof. Dr. M. E. Pohst at Technische Universität Berlin.
The KANT functions are accessible through a user-friendly shell named KASH (KAnt SHell) that is freely available.

A note on KASH3 and older versions of KASH
Many parts of KASH have been redesigned since the release of KASH 2.5. We must apologize that code written for KASH 2.x will not run under KASH3 without modifications. However, there still will be bug fixes and at least one more version of KASH 2.x which will be released in late 2005 or early 2006.
