  • Over the last few years, the use of computer algebra has become increasingly widespread in many areas of science, mathematics, and engineering. These two lectures are intended to give an idea of the range of computer algebra tools available to the relativist and the kind of problems to which they can be applied. The first lecture deals with the main general-purpose systems in use today, while the second covers systems and packages more specific to general relativity. In each case, the features… CONTINUE READING
