Abstract The theory of angular momentum and of spherical tensor operators leads to algebraic expressions which are usually written in terms of generalized Clebsch-Gordan coefficients and/or Wigner n-j symbols. In principle, the evaluation and simplification of such expressions is a straightforward task but it can also become extremely cumbersome in more complex applications, for instance, in atomic and nuclear structure theory or in the study of angular dependent properties. In these fields, simplific... Title of program: Racah Catalogue Id: ADFV_v1_0 Nature of problem Computer algebra (CA) is used to evaluate Wigner n-j symbols and vector coupling coefficients and to simplify typical expressions which appear by using Racah algebra techniques. A set of Maple commands for interactive work is presented.
