Two open graphical user interfaces to the computer algebra system GRTensorII are described. Each can be run locally or via the Internet. These provide students and researchers in the area of General Relativity and related fields with advanced truly portable tools that reduce many complex calculations to elementary functions.

A tool for teaching General Relativity

GRTensorJ - Books is an active interface to a small part of the computer algebra systems GRTensorII and GRtensorM with the specific intent of providing students of General Relativity with an advanced programmable calculator-style tool.

Computer Algebra Systems in General Relativity

This paper presents a review of the use of Computer Algebra Systems in General Relativity research and teaching. On one hand, the impact of using Computer Algebra Systems in General Relativity

The general nature of computer algebra is discussed, along with some aspects of CA system design; features particular to GR’s requirements are considered; information on packages for CA in GR is provided, both for those packages currently available and for their predecessors.

Gravitational entropy of wormholes with exotic matter and in galactic halos

This work study and compare the features of gravitational entropy near the throat of transversable wormholes formed by exotic matter and wormholes in galactic halos and finds that both are endowed with an entropic behaviour similar to Hawking–Bekenstein's entropy of nonrotating and null charge black holes.
