Editorial review


Margie Smeer Senior editor

Wolfram Mathematica is a computational piece of software that offers solutions for several industries: Engineering, Biotechnology and Medicine, Finance, Statistics, Business Analysis, Software Development, Science, Education, and even Arts and Entertainment.

Mathematica has its own specific syntax.
Nevertheless, new users can benefit from the free-form linguistic input. They will enter content in plain English, and receive an interpretation of their request in accordance with the Mathematica syntax.

The computational abilities of this smart tool can be used in a wide array of domains. Aircraft designs can be mathematically optimized, chemical processes can be simulated, mechanical systems can be designed and simulated. In Economics, reports can be automatically generated and sophisticated statistics can be obtained. Users from the Design and Arts areas are able to create computer animations and special effects. Bioinformatics professionals are able to project clusters of DNA sequences, and visualize protein folds, among many other tasks they can perform.

Wolfram Mathematica can achieve all these tasks because of the advanced algorithms, statistical analysis tools, precise symbolic and numeric engine, and high precision physics that underlie it. These are only a few of the aspects that have been taken into account when building this powerful tool.

Wolfram Mathematica is a utility for professionals coming from several domains where computational tools are needed. It takes time for one to learn how to use it to its full potential, but the utility has been designed so that new users can be helped in learning their way around.
