Description

We are presenting an algorithm capable of simplifying tensor polynomials with indices when the building tensors have index symmetry properties. These properties include simple symmetry, cyclicity and those due to the presence of covariant derivatives. The algorithm is part of a Mathematica package called Tools of Tensor Calculus (TTC).
