Abstract : This paper describes in outline the structure and use of REDUCE, a program designed for large-scale algebraic computations of interest to applied mathematicians, physicists and engineers. The capabilities of the system include: expansion, ordering and reduction of rational functions of polynomials, symbolic differentiation, substitutions for variables and expressions appearing in other expressions, simplification of symbolic determinants and matrix expressions, tensor and non-commutative algebraic calculations of interest to high energy physicists.
