Nature of problem:
There is a wide range using vector calculus in orthogonal curvilinear coordinates and vector integration, differentiation and series expansion.
Computer aided algebra using standard orthogonal curvilinear coordinates for differential and integral operators.
The REDUCE procedures use LISP vectors to provide a compact mathematical notation similar to that normally found in vector analysis textbooks.
This is strongly problem dependent: the test examples given took respectively 10,19 and 48 seconds on a SUN 4/310, SUN 4/110 and ACORN Springboard.
