SAL Home MATH Computer Algebra System


FORM is a symbolic manipulation program that is eminently suited for large problems in mathematics, physics, and engineering. The size of the formulae that it can manipulate is virtually unlimited: the major limitation is usually the size of the available disk space. It has been designed for speed so that large expressions may be dealt with in a finite amount of time. Overflowing the available amounts of physical memory results in only a minor slow down as the disk memory is managed by FORM itself rather than by the virtual memory manager of the computer (the memory management can slow down a computer algebra system enormously when expressions become large).
