Abstract:

This paper describes in outline the structure and use of REDUCE, a program designed for large-scale algebraic computations of interest to applied mathematicians, physicists and engineers. The capabilities of the system include expansion, ordering and reduction of rational functions of polynomials, symbolic differentiation, substitutions for variables and expressions appearing in other expressions, simplification of symbolic determinants and matrix expressions, tensor and non-commutative algebraic calculations of interest to high energy physicists.
