I use Mathematica only because I have it and am somewhat familiar with it. The basic package is good for standard vector analysis, and add ons are apparently available for differential geometry, but I have not used them. If they are anything like FEA package developers, they tend to see-saw in leadership with one excelling this version and another the next. I can’t recommend one over the other. Doug
