# SageMathCell timeout issue

My website currently has live math using embedded Mathematica CDFs. Since Wolfram has told me that they are dropping support for the browser plugin, I would like to convert all of my live math to SageMathCell. In the first page I'm testing, I've found that evaluating the eigenvalues of a numerical 30x30 symmetric real matrix over RDF does not finish and the cell in which the evaluation runs becomes grayed out while the working indicator continues to spin endlessly.

Is this a limitation of your server or my local machine? Is there some way to keep the cell alive until the evaluation completes? Thanks.

This is almost certainly a planned timeout - the service doesn't have endless computational capability. What is the matrix, though? (Update your question.) If it's symbolic then, yes, it will take forever because it happens in Maxima and solving such things is by Abel's Theorem not so easy :) but hopefully using the right base field should solve your problem.

(I could imagine that one could set up one's own cell server that allowed longer timeouts, or pay for such a service. Wolfram Alpha also only allows only so many computational resources before saying sayonara.)

Also, is the Wolfram support dropping only for Chrome? E.g. http://mathematica.stackexchange.com/... Just curious.

Finally, regarding http://analyticphysics.com/ you may be interested in http://mathbook.pugetsound.edu/

Question updated: matrix is real symmetric numerical over RDF. Are there any keywords that will speed up the diagonalization?

At some point I may set up my own server. For now I'll work with the known limitation.
