# How to use Sage (or other software) to simplify this algebraic expression ?

Background: I was trying to understand the IBM 1 machine translation models when I came across a summation involving summation over Kronecker Delta, which was later simplified. I want to know if it is possible to automagically simplify complicated summations in Sage (I haven't ever used symbolic math toolbozes before)

Detailed Question: Is it possible to use Sage to simplify equations such as the following

and the definitions of the terms are $\delta$ is the Kronecker delta and $p(a | e,f)$ is defined as

where a and t are defined as

The final simplified form of the equation is
