Tools Articles

  • Date: 16 Oct 2012

Mathematica is a computer software program for computations developed by Wolfram. It has an integrated all-in-one platform, applies automation to every part of the system, integrates symbolic and and numeric methodology, simultaneously supports many programming paradigms and contains document-based workflow.

The program's features include: core algorithms, numerical computing, application areas, data sources and analysis, graphics and visualization, programming and development, interactivity and interface design, deployment and connectivity, and producitivity and usability.

'Almost any workflow involves computing results, and that's what Mathematica does—from building a hedge fund trading website or publishing interactive engineering textbooks to developing embedded image recognition algorithms or teaching calculus. Mathematica is renowned as the world's ultimate application for computations. But it's much more—it's the only development platform fully integrating computation into complete workflows, moving you seamlessly from initial ideas all the way to deployed individual or enterprise solutions.'
