Wolfram Mathematica

The world's definitive system for modern technical computing

For more than 25 years, Mathematica has defined the state of the art in technical computing—and provided the principal computation environment for millions of innovators, educators, students, and others around the world.

Widely admired for both its technical prowess and elegant ease of use, Mathematica provides a single integrated, continually expanding system that covers the breadth and depth of technical computing—and with Mathematica Online, it is now seamlessly available in the cloud through any web browser, as well as natively on all modern desktop systems.

For Modern Technical Computing,
There's No Other Choice

With energetic development and consistent vision for 25+ years, Mathematica stands alone in a huge range of dimensions, unique in its support for today's technical computing environments and workflows.

A Vast System, All Integrated

Mathematica has nearly 5,000 built-in functions covering all areas of technical computing—all carefully integrated so they work perfectly together, and all included in the fully integrated Mathematica system.

Not Just Numbers, Not Just Math—But Everything

Building on 25+ years of development, Mathematica excels across all areas of technical computing—including networks, images, geometry, data science, visualization, machine learning, and much more.

Unimaginable Algorithm Power

Mathematica builds in unprecedentedly powerful algorithms across all areas—many of them created at Wolfram using unique development methodologies and the unique capabilities of the Wolfram Language.

Higher Level Than Ever Before

Superfunctions, meta-algorithms... Mathematica provides a progressively higher-level environment in which as much as possible is automated—so you can work as efficiently as possible.

Everything Is Industrial Strength

Mathematica is built to provide industrial-strength capabilities—with robust, efficient algorithms across all areas, capable of handling large-scale problems, with parallelism, GPU computing, and more.

Powerful Ease of Use

Mathematica draws on its algorithmic power—as well as the careful design of the Wolfram Language—to create a system that's uniquely easy to use, with predictive suggestions, natural language input, and more.

Documents As Well As Code

Mathematica uses the Wolfram Notebook Interface, which allows you to organize everything you do in rich documents that include text, runnable code, dynamic graphics, user interfaces, and more.

The Code Makes Sense

With its intuitive English-like function names and coherent design, the Wolfram Language is uniquely easy to read, write, and learn.

Make Your Results Look Their Best

With sophisticated computational aesthetics and award-winning design, Mathematica presents your results beautifully—instantly creating top-of-the-line interactive visualizations and publication-quality documents.

150,000+ Examples

Get started with almost any project with help from 150,000+ examples in the Documentation Center, nearly 10,000 open-code Demonstrations in the Wolfram Demonstrations Project—and a host of other resources.

Instant Real-World Data

Mathematica has access to the vast Wolfram Knowledgebase, which includes up-to-the-minute real-world data across thousands of domains.

Seamless Cloud Integration

Mathematica is now seamlessly integrated with the Cloud—allowing sharing, cloud computing, and more

Connected to Everything

Mathematica is built to be connected to everything: file formats (180+), other languages, APIs, databases, programs, Internet-of-Things devices—and even distributed instances of itself.

The Mathematica Trajectory
It's Come a Long Way in 25+ Years

The 500+ functions from Mathematica 1 are still in Mathematica 10—but there are now nearly 4,500 more, as well as a huge range of important new ideas that dramatically extend the vision and scope of the system.

The 1988 Revolution

When Mathematica first appeared in 1988, it revolutionized technical computing—and every year since then it's kept going, introducing new functions, new algorithms and new ideas.

Far, Far Beyond Math

Math was Mathematica's first great application area—and building on that success, Mathematica has systematically expanded into a vast range of areas, covering all forms of technical computing and beyond.

The Innovation Gets Even Faster

Mathematica has followed a remarkable trajectory of accelerating innovation for more than 25 years—made possible at every stage by systematically building on its increasingly large capabilities so far.

Serious New Ideas in Every Version

Versions of Mathematica aren't just incremental software updates; each successive one is a serious achievement that extends the paradigm of computation in new directions and introduces important new ideas.

What You Learned in Version 1 Still Works

If you're one of the lucky people who used Mathematica 1, the code you wrote 25+ years ago will still work—and you'll recognize the core ideas of Mathematica 1 in the vast system that is Mathematica today.

Always Moving Forward, for 25+ Years

Mathematica has always stayed true to its core principles and careful design disciplines, letting it continually move forward and integrate new functionality and methodologies without ever having to backtrack.
