Abstract : Expressions that play roles in tensor analysis, such as Christofell symbols and curvature tensors, are coded as Mathematica modules by straightforward transcription of their defining equations. The built-in functions can then be used to perform tensor analysis and numerical evaluations. The utility of the Mathematica formulation is illustrated by examples from Schwarzchild gravitation. (AN)
