    Jan,
    
    Computer algebra systems such as Mathematica or Maple are very versatile,
    but expensive. MuPAD is free but I have no experience with it. Maxima is
    also free but the interface is horrible.
    For MuPAD visit

    Many other symbolic packages are found at

    Next comes Matlab, basically intended for doing linear algebra, but it can
    do a whole lot more, though not symbolic, only numerical calculations. I
    think it comes pretty close to what you are looking for. There is a free
    clone called Octave, which  can run on all Unix-like environments including
    Solaris and Linux. I don't know if a Windoze-version exists.
    
    
    The following site has a section "Freely Available Packages" which might
    include something of your liking:

    See its entries for CMAP and Sicyon, for example.
