Programming language: MATHEMATICA.
Computer: Computers that run MATHEMATICA.
Operating system: MATHEMATICA runs under linux and windows.
RAM: Minimum of 512kbytes
Keywords: Geodesic equation, inverse problem, MATHEMATICA.
PACS: 11.10.-z.
Classification: 1.5.

Nature of problem:
The code we have developed calculates the space when the geodesic equations are given.

Solution method:
The code gives the user the option of selecting a subset of the metric tensor required for constructing the Christoffel symbols. This system is over-determined hence the results are not unique.

Running time:
Dependent on the RAM available and complexity of the metric tensor
