MuPAD-Combinat, an Open-Source Package for Research in Algebraic Combinatorics

Abstract. In this article we give an overview of the MuPAD-Combinat open-source algebraic combinatorics package for the computer algebra system MuPAD 2.0.0 and higher. This includes our motivations for developing yet another combinatorial software, a tutorial introduction with lots of examples, as well as notes on the general design. The material presented here is also available as a part of the MuPAD-Combinat handbook; further details and references on the algorithms used can be found there. The package and the handbook are available from the web page, together with download and installation instructions, mailing-lists, etc.
