This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018) Abstract We give a simple tutorial introduction to the Mathematica package STRINGVACUA, which is designed to find vacua of string-derived or inspired four-dimensional N = 1 supergravities. The package uses powerful algebro-geometric methods, as implemented in the free computer algebra system Singular, but requires no knowledge of the mathematics upon which it is based. A series of easy-to-use Mathematica modules are provided which can be used both in string theory and in more general applications requ... Title of program: STRINGVACUA Catalogue Id: AEBZ_v1_0 Nature of problem A central problem of string-phenomenology is to find stable vacua in the four dimensional effective theories which result from compactification.
