Symbolic Manipulation Codes

  • Abraham I. Beltzer


Symbolic manipulation codes (SMC) have a remarkable capability to work with symbols. As a result of investigations in artificial intelligence, many such codes have been developed in recent years. Here are a few of them: MACSYMA, REDUCE, SCRATCHPAD, MATHEMATICA, MAPLE and DERIVE. They represent the so-called expert systems which contain and manipulate information on a certain branch of human knowledge and purport to facilitate the analysis.
