Abstract

A method to calculate Feynman diagrams is developed using a symbolic manipulation package that runs in a personal computer. Commercially available package called "Mathematica" is used. The method to calculate scattering amplitudes in the lowest order in the perturbation theory is demonstrated by explicitly calculating a Feynman diagram in Quantum Chromodyanamics. The procedure described here can be easily extended to calculate any Feynman diagram including next to leading order diagrams and also to the calculation of Feynman diagrams in Quantum electrodyanamics.
