Reduze is a computer program for reducing Feynman integrals to master integrals employing a Laporta algorithm. The program is written in C++ and uses classes provided by the GiNaC library to perform the simplifications of the algebraic prefactors in the system of equations. Reduze offers the possibility to run reductions in parallel.

Ireland Licensing provisions:: yes No. of lines in distributed program, including test data, etc.: 55 433 No. of bytes in distributed program, including test data, etc.: 554 866 Distribution format: tar.gz Programming language: C++ Computer: All Operating system: Unix/Linux Number of processors used: The number of processors is problem dependent. More than one possible but not arbitrary many. RAM: Depends on the complexity of the system. Classification: 4.4, 5 External routines: CLN (http://www.ginac.de/CLN/), GiNaC (http://www.ginac.de/) Nature of problem: Solving large systems of linear equations with Feynman integrals as unknowns and rational polynomials as prefactors. Solution method: Using a Gauss/Laporta algorithm to solve the system of equations. Restrictions: Limitations depend on the complexity of the system (number of equations, number of kinematic invariants). Running time: Depends on the complexity of the system.
