This presentation is about the computation of a canonical form of a tetrad, so that, generally speaking (skipping a technical description) the Weyl scalars are fixed as much as possible (either equal to 0 or to 1) regarding transformations that leave invariant the tetrad metric in a tetrad system of references. Bringing a tetrad in canonical form is a relevant step in the tackling of the equivalence problem between two spacetime metrics (solutions to Einstein's equations).

This application is also the subject of a blog post on MaplePrimes.
