Abstract : REDUCE is a program designed for general algebraic computations of interest to physicists and engineers. Its capabilities include: Expansion and ordering of rational functions of polynomials; symbolic differentiation; substitutions in a wide variety of forms; reduction of quotients of polynomials by cancellation of common factors; calculation of symbolic determinants; calculations of interest to high energy physicists including spin 1/2 and spin 1 algebra. The program is written completely in the language LISP 1.5 and may therefore be run with little modification on any computer possessing a LISP 1.5 compiler or interpreter. (Author)
