SOMMER was originally developed by Florian Schwarte, André Brück, Evgenij Proschak, Yusuf Tanrikulu and Kai Scheiffele as a student project under supervision of Michael Schmuker, Alireza Givehchi and Gisbert Schneider in summer 2004. It has since then been refactored, extended and maintained by Michael Schmuker as part of his PhD thesis under supervision of Prof. Dr. Gisbert Schneider at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University, Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Enquiries should be addressed to Michael Schmuker..

If you have questions concerning the details of the program, please consult the manual and publication.
