A number of software tools are available that do symbolic computation that can facilitate the theoretical analysis of a mathematical model. We made use of one of these tools, Mathematica (Wolfram, 1988), to implement the global familiarity memory models of Gillund and Shiffrin (1984) and Murdock (1982, 1983). We describe our implementation, and illustrate the flexibility and efficiency of use that these tools allow.
