A computer program for numeric and symbolic manipulation and the methodology underlying its development are presented. Some features of the program are: an option for implied multiplication; computation of higher-order derivatives; differentiation of 26 different trigonometric, hyperbolic, inverse trigonometric, and inverse hyperbolic functions; complete identity removal; precise diagnostic messages for invalid input expressions; and various trace and simplification options.
