The automatic conversion of spinor equations to dyad form in MAPLE

Czapor, S.R., McLenaghan, R.G. and Carminati, J. (1992) The automatic conversion of spinor equations to dyad form in MAPLE. General Relativity and Gravitation, 24 (9). pp. 911-928.

A new package in the symbolic algebra system MAPLE is presented for the conversion of complicated spinor equations to their expansions with respect to a normalized spinor dyad. By following a simple index convention, we obtain a powerful computational tool with a straightforward and easy to use syntax. A number of examples, including nontrivial applications of the package to recent research, are provided.
