The short review of the theory of Abelian functions and its applications in mechanics and analytical theory of differential equations is given. We think that Abelian functions are the natural generalization of commonly used functions because if the general solution of the 2nd order differential equation depends algebraically on the constants of integration, then integrating this equation does not lead out of the realm of commonly used functions complemented by the Abelian functions (Painlevé theorem). We present a relatively simple example of a dynamical system that is integrated in Abelian integrals by "pairing" two copies of a hyperelliptic curve. Unfortunately, initially simple formulas unfold into very long ones. Apparently the theory of Abelian functions hasn't been finished in the last century because without computer algebra systems it was impossible to complete the calculations to the end. All calculations presented in our report are performed in Sage. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
