Wolfram founder Stephen Wolfram shares the background and vision of Mathematica, including the personal story of how it came to be and why it's in the right place to make profoundly powerful new things possible.
Harness the power of Mathematica to interactively visualize your data. We start with simple charts, add labels and legends, and customize the appearance. In a series of examples, we process and incorporate additional data and create specialized visual elements, resulting in a rich interface allowing you to interactively explore your data in depth. Specific topics covered will include general options for adding styles and labels to your charts, enhancing your data with wrappers and metadata, and writing custom rendering functions that make use of the metadata to show additional levels of information.
In this presentation you'll learn how to best use Mathematica's numerics functions in advanced settings. Topics include techniques and best practices for using multiple numerical functions together, advanced numerics features, and understanding precision and accuracy.
Mathematica 8 provides a new range of financial functions that can be used as the building blocks for constructing simple programs that accomplish complex tasks. Equity and bond prices can be accessed with FinancialData and can then be analyzed using a comprehensive array of indicators to develop efficient trading strategies. Bonds, annuities, and cash-flow structures can be modified easily to evaluate a wide range of financial products. In addition, it is possible to hedge the risk in your portfolio by using FinancialDerivative to evaluate both European and American style options.
How can we solve real-world image processing problems with Mathematica? How does Mathematica's unique dynamic functionality let you quickly optimize image processing algorithms? This seminar will explore some of the depth of Mathematica's image processing capabilities, how they integrate with Mathematica's other features, and how they can be combined to create powerful interactive tools.
Find out how you can create and analyze models of electrical, mechanical, thermal, biochemical, and other systems with MathModelica. This example-driven presentation will teach you how to develop models of complex systems using drag and drop with the new Wolfram MathModelica software, and illustrate how you can take the models seamlessly into Mathematica for doing your simulation analysis as well as model design.
