Abstract : A program which performs 'obvious' (non-controversial) simplifying transformations on algebraic expressions (written in LISP prefix notation) is described. Cancellation of inverses and consolidation of sums and products are the basic accomplishments of the program; however, if the user desires to do so, he may request the program to perform special tasks, such as collect common factors from products in sums or expand products.
