Cadabra : A Symbolic computer algebra for multi-indexed objects

Sitender Kashyap


Often a physics computation involves manipulation of multi-indexed objects with complicated symmetry properties, manipulation of huge number of terms with complicated substitution rules, contractions etc. On the extreme, sometimes they can be simple but very long and time consuming. In either case, if the problem is well defined, then Cadabra can be of help. In this talk, we shall provide a hands-on introduction to Cadabra.
