Abstract

We propose a methodology, based on Computer Algebra and implemented in CoCoA language, for constructing rule based expert systems, that can be applied to the diagnosis of some illnesses. For the sake of clarity, our proposal uses a simplified description of depression, assuming that our aim is the proposal of a general methodology rather than the study of this particular illness.
