Manuscript Title: VEST: abstract vector calculus simplification in Mathematica | ||

Authors: J. Squire, J. Burby, H. Qin | ||

Program title: VEST (Vector Einstein Summation Tools) | ||

Catalogue identifier: AEQN_v1_0Distribution format: tar.gz | ||

Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 185(2014)128 | ||

Programming language: Mathematica. | ||

Computer: Any computer running Mathematica. | ||

Operating system: Linux, Unix, Windows, Mac OS X. | ||

RAM: Usually under 10 Mbytes | ||

Keywords: Vector calculus, Mathematica, Tensors. | ||

PACS: 02.90.+p, 52.20.-j. | ||

Classification: 5, 12, 19. | ||

Nature of problem:Large scale vector calculus computations | ||

Solution method:Reduce expressions to standard form in index notation, automatic derivation of multi-term vector identities. | ||

Restrictions:Current version cannot derive vector identities without cross products or curl | ||

Additional comments:Intuitive user input and output in a combination of vector and index notation | ||

Running time:Reduction to standard form is usually less than one second. Simplification of very large expressions can take much longer. |
