Abstract : The paper investigates the utility of an experimental programming language, FLAP, when applied to some typical problems of the working mathematician and engineer. The investigation is conducted by writing programs in the language to solve the following three 'typical' problems: (1) Transforming differential equations by means of a change in independent variables. (2) Obtaining Frobenius series solutions of ordinary linear, second order, differential equations with polynomial coefficients about regular and regular singular points. (3) Obtaining a prime factorization of a polynomial in one variable with integral coefficients. (Author)
