wish you luck.

The goal of the Foc project is to have a certified computer algebra library,
and, as part of it we wrote a fairly complete library for abstract and
concrete mathematics which covers the basis for a computer agebra system.
Tthe Foc code is not really public, but is not secret either ; it is simply
not ready for public distribution.

will give you an idea of what the project is about. 

As of excellency of the code, I don't really know, but you will find
comparisons with the Axiom computer algebra system on our page.

You will also find there an announcement for a meeting we will have on
december 21 and 22. You are welcome if you want to discuss the different
object oriented features we use in the library with us.
