The first part of this report is devoted to a treatment of Laurent series as symbolic entities. The concept of an explicitly computable function having functions as arguments and values is introduced. It is shown that most operations with Laurent series as operands and values are not explicitly computable. The second part deals with truncated Laurent series. An implementation of a system of subroutines in FORMAC handling truncated Laurent series is described. A short version of this paper was presented at the meeting of the SHARE Symbolic Mathematical Computation Working Committee, Dayton, Ohio, on 1-2 Dec 1966. Author
