Abstract / Description of output

PRESS is a computer program for solving symbolic, transcendental, non-differential equations. We describe a new equation solving method, called Homogenization, which we have implemented in PRESS. Homogenization prepares equations, so that they can be solved by the Change of Unknown method. It does this by oausing different occurrences of the unknown to occur within identical subterms. The method has application, outside equation solving, to the
equations, problem of generalizing expressions.
