"Tensorial" package for mathematica helps a bit. http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/MathSource/434/ C. Arthur tom u a =E9crit : > Does anyone know of a general method to compare terms so that one can simplify expressions with terms that are sums over indices where the the index variables are different?
