The lecture is intended to give an overview and history on the big variety of CAS that were/are available. We investigate and compare their structure and abilities. The lecture will start with an introduction into the field and then cover the two most popular general purpose CAS, namely Maple and Mathematica. Then we continue with other systems like FriCAS, SageMath, GAP, Maxima, etc. For each of these CAS a short tutorial will be given and its limitations and common pitfalls will be discussed. The rest of the lecture will be dedicated to special purpose CAS from different areas of mathematics.
