A need for a computer software to solve-out the Reduction Formula for different Point Groups is beyond doubt. That would save time and effort to many chemists who are involved in different aspects of chemical applications of group theory, and may give a good approach to researchers dealing with Molecular Chemistry. This thesis presents a computer software that has been developed using Visual Basic 6.0 as a programming language. The input and output data are performed through software forms under Windows Vista environment. The software is able to perform the following functions: 1.Reducing Reducible Representations for 47Point Groups.2.Finding Reducible Representations and for Infinite Point Groups C and D and reducing them by S-L Method.3.Finding Reducible Representation and reducing it for six chosen Point Groups C, C, C, D, D and Solutions derived from the constructed software were tested by comparison with manual standard methods, and showed complete consistency.
