Abstract:

A large computer program has been developed to aid applied mathematicians in the solution of problems in non-numerical analysis which involve tedious manipulations of mathematical expressions. The mathematician uses typed commands and a light pen to direct the computer in the application of mathematical transformations the intermediate results are displayed in standard text-book format so that the system user can decide the next step in the problem solution. Three problems selected from the literature have been solved to illustrate the use of the system. A detailed analysis of the problems of input, transformation, and display of mathematical expressions is also presented. Author
