Computer algebra systems are computer programs that not only perform numeric computations but are also capable of symbolic computations. They can be given inputs like and respond with alternate forms like or , find the root (in this example, ), compute derivatives, indefinite integrals, global minimums, series representations, differential geometric curves, etc. And of course they can also handle explicit inputs like .

The most commonly-used computer algebra systems on the OEIS are Maple, Mathematica, and PARI/GP. Other systems used are Magma and Sage.
