So, we did them by virtue of the "Macsyma symbolic manipulator code", created by MIT for NASA back in the 1960s.

A computer program called "MACSYMA" was enlisted to obtain results and ensure accuracy.
Like the MACSYMA advisor (Genesereth, 1982), CalMaeth currently gives the student as much detail as possible in the diagnostic.

That survey narrowed the field to eight: Derive, IMSL, Macsyma, Maple, Mathcad, Mathematica, Matlab, and TK Solver.
Products strong in numerical processing, according to an R&D Magazine survey of software developers, include Macsyma's Macsyma, The MathWork's MATLAB, National Instruments' HiQ, Speakeasy's Speakeasy, and Wolfram Research's Mathematica.
PFSA documentation suggests that if offers fewer features than Macsyma but much faster operation.
In well-developed symbolic algebra languages, such as Macsyma, an arsenal of simplifying tools is available, and their selection is interactively made by the user.
