Nature of problem:
Evaluate quantum corrections to the effective action of supersymmetric field theories, formulated in the superfield formalism, both in three- and four-spacetime dimensions.

Solution method:
A set of procedures for integration by parts, application of the algebra of covariant derivatives and grassman integration, along with several auxiliary functions, is introduced.

At the moment, the background field method is not implemented, yet the system is designed to be further generalized.

Running time:
Depends on the complexity of the problem. From seconds for simpler one-loop diagrams to several hours for simple two-loop graphs.
