- I'm trying to solve for the Gaussian Curvature of a 4-D metric tensor. What program or library can do this?

I've been trying to find a way to calculate Gaussian curvature from a 4D metric tensor. I found a program that does this in Mathematica using the Brioschi formula. However, this only seems to work for a 2D metric or formula (I would need to use something with more dimensions). I've found abundant ways to do this for the Ricci scalar curvature, but for this I'm specifically trying to find the Gaussian curvature. Is there a program I can use that does this? Preferably in Python or Mathematica, as these are the languages I am familiar with.
