This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed joint post-proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Mathematics Mechanization, IWMM 2004, held in Shanghai, China in May 2004 and the International Workshop on Geometric Invariance and Applications in Engineering, GIAE 2004, held in Xian, China in May 2004.

The 30 revised full papers presented were rigorously reviewed and selected from 65 presentations given at the two workshops. The papers are devoted to topics such as applications of computer algebra in celestial and engineering multibody systems, differential equations, computer vision, computer graphics, and the theory and applications of geometric algebra in geometric reasoning, robot vision, and computer graphics.
