Nature of problem:
Evaluate quantum corrections to the effective action of supersymmetric field theories, formulated in the superfield formalism, both in three- and four-spacetime dimensions.

Solution method:
A set of procedures for integration by parts, application of the algebra of covariant derivatives and grassman integration, along with several auxiliary functions, is introduced.

Restrictions:
At the moment, the background field method is not implemented, yet the system is designed to be further generalized.

Running time:
Depends on the complexity of the problem. From seconds for simpler one-loop diagrams to several hours for simple two-loop graphs.
