Abstract : The state of the art of computer development has reached the point where it is now possible to sacrifice some of the extremely high speed of arithmetic computations in order to relieve man of tedium in another area - that of algebraic computation. The report presents the results of a development which uses an IBM 7090/94 computer to derive in nonnumeric terms the equations of motion of a system. This system can be composed of any number of masses which are acted upon by forces due to springs, dampers, gravity, and external forces. (Author)
