Cadabra   is a new computer algebra system designed specifically for the solution of problems encountered in field theory. It has extensive functionality for tensor polynomial simplification taking care of Bianchi and Schouten identities, for fermions and anti-commuting variables, Clifford algebras and Fierz transformations, implicit coordinate dependence, multiple index types and many other field theory related concepts. The input format is a subset of TeX and thus easy to learn. Both a command-line and a graphical interface are available.

Here is the Introducing Cadabra by K. Peeters

Calc 3D - an international freeware program for calculating 3-dimensional vectors, matrices, complex numbers and quaternions with Windows 98/NT
CoCoA  is a freely available system for computing with multivariate polynomials. CoCoA deals with computations in multivariate polynomial rings over the rationals or modular integers, and on their ideals and modules. The implementation of the ideal/module theoretic operations relies on Grobner basis theory.
