Obtaining Feynman's path integral, which is a representation for the system's Green's function, is essential for many physical problems. In this paper, a symbolic algebra program is presented to evaluate analytically Feynman's path integral for an interaction of the form F(t)r. Such an interaction governs the motion of an electron in the field of one or more lasers as well as in a static electric field.
