Automatic symmetry detection has received a significant amount of interest, which has resulted in a large number of proposed methods. This paper reports on our experiences while implementing the approach of Puget (CP2005, LNCS, vol. 3709, pp. 475–489. Springer, 2005). In particular, it proposes a modification to the approach to deal with general expressions, discusses the insights gained, and gives the results of an experimental evaluation of the accuracy and efficiency of the approach.
