Abstract

The paper describes some applications of symbolic algebra systems to problems of General Relativity including the derivation of the field equations, the Petrov classification of a metric and the solution of the field equations in the presence of matter in a simple case. Attention is drawn to the strictly algebraic difficulties encountered in this work.
