For many years, Martinus J. G. Veltman's program, Schoonschip, was the premiere computer algebra system for high energy theory calculations. CDC Schoonschip was part of the CERN program library as catalog item R 201 was was available for anyone to use. Its initial documentation is in the form of a CERN preprint by Prof. Veltman in 1967. From 1972-1977, Hugo Strubbe was responsible for much of the maintenance and distribution of CDC Schoonschip at CERN. In this position, he wrote additional documentation and promoted the code at international seminars.

Note that there is overlap between the categories of documentation presented below.

- A CDC 6600 program for symbolic
evaluation of algebraic expressions

M. Veltman, CERN preprint 1967

This is the first generally available documentation of Schoonschip, and can be considered to be the manual for the 1967 version of Schoonschip. This preprint is often cite by authors who have used Schoonschip for their calculations. - Manual for
Schoonschip: A CDC 6000/7000 Program for Symbolic Evaluation of Algebraic
Expressions

H. Strubbe, Comp. Phys. Comm. 8 (1974) 1 [doi:10.1016/0010-4655(74)90081-2]

[Also available as CERN DD report DD/74/5]

This manual describes the 1973 version of Schoonschip. - Schoonschip,
a Program for Algebraic Manipulations

H. Strubbe, CERN Computer Newsletter No. 81 (1975)

This describes the January 1, 1973 version of Schoonschip and how to run it on the CERN CDC computers. - Manual for Schoonschip –
Addition to the 1973 version

H. Strubbe, CERN program library writeup, 1977

Programs in the CERN program library have associated documentation. This is a collection of two addenda dated October 15, 1975 and April 15, 1977 to the Schoonschip documentation. - Schoonschip: a program for
symbol handling

Martinus J. G. Veltman, ed. David N. Williams, January 1991

This is an updated manual for the January 1, 1991 version of Schoonschip, and describes the M68k version developed at the University of Michigan. Much effort has been made to maintain backward compatibility with CDC Schoonschip, so this document is generally useful for all versions. - Conversion
of Jobs from 6000 RIOS to 7000 RIOS

H. Strubbe, CERN Computer Newsletter No. 79 (1973)

Not a Schoonschip manual, but rather this newsletter article explains how to use the DOMOR updating program to assist with program conversion when the CERN computer center was upgrading to a new set of CDC mainframes.

- Development of
the Schoonschip Program

H. Strubbe, Comp. Phys. Comm. 18 (1979) 1 [doi:10.1016/0010-4655(79)90019-5].

This article updates the 1973 Schoonschip manual ("Manual for Schoonschip" shown above) to the April 1, 1977 version of Schoonschip. It also announces the IBM version and describes the conversion process. - Converting Schoonschip to IBM

H. Strubbe, CERN DD report DD/77/1 (1977)

This highlights some of the issues that were faced when converting CDC code to the IBM S/360 family such as differences in word size and the use of bit structures in Schoonschip. Hugo Strubbe performed the conversion by first analyzing the Schoonschip code and reverse engineering it into a PL/I-like language and then compiling the PL/I into a set of IBM BAL macros.
