Wolfram Research, Inc. makes available a Technical Report titled "Guide to Standard Mathematica Packages (Version 2.2)." It is a complete documentation of all packages shipped standard with Mathematica 2.2 releases. Alternatively, individual package source codes and documentation (text files) can be downloaded from MathSource (http://www.wolfram.com/mathsource/index.html). The drawback to this approach is that you must search for each package. > Question 3: Maple has a tensor package. Matlab has a Schwarz-Christoffel > transformation package. Does MMA have either of these? A third-party developer -- MathSolutions, has a tensor package.
