A Dold-Puppe complex is the image NFΓ(C.) of a chain complex C. under the composition of the functors Γ, F and N, where Γ and N are given by the Dold-Kan correspondence and F is a not necessarily linear functor between two abelian categories. The first half of this paper gives an algorithm that streamlines the calculation of Γ(C.). The second half gives an algorithm that allows the explicit calculation of the Dold-Puppe complex NFΓ(C.) in terms of the cross-effect functors of F.
