Manuscript Title: ORTHOVEC: a REDUCE program for 3-D vector analysis in orthogonal
curvilinear coordinates. | ||

Authors: J.W. Eastwood | ||

Program title: ORTHOVEC | ||

Catalogue identifier: AAXY_v1_0Distribution format: gz | ||

Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 47(1987)139 | ||

Programming language: Reduce. | ||

Computer: VAX 11/750. | ||

Operating system: VMS 4.2, MS-DOS, ARM-OS. | ||

Word size: 32 | ||

Keywords: Computer algebra, Vector analysis, Series expansion, Plasma physics, Hydrodynamics. | ||

Classification: 5. | ||

Nature of problem:There is a wide range using vector calculus in orthogonal curvilinear coordinates and vector integration, differentiation and series expansion. | ||

Solution method:Computer aided algebra using standard orthogonal curvilinear coordinate expressions for differential and integral operators. | ||

Unusual features:The REDUCE procedures use LISP vectors to provide a compact mathematical notation similar to that normally found in vector analysis textbooks. | ||

Running time:This is problem and machine dependent: the test example given took 58 c.p.u. seconds on a VAX 11/750 and 18 seconds on the Olivetti M24 PC with ACORN ARM application board. |
