Algebraic computation involves solving problems on a symbolic level. Symbolic computation can be tedious and error prone. Thus it is desirable to automate such tasks using a computer. A number of popular software solutions exist such as SymbolicC++, Maxima, Reduce, Mathematica, Maple, MuPAD and Axiom. This course describes properties of such systems and the implementation of a system for symbolic computation.
