Core Algorithms

New and Improved Core Algorithms

Mathematica 8 adds a number of dramatic improvements to its core algorithms, with a new generation of methods for globally solving equations and inequalities, either symbolically or numerically. New symbolic-numeric methods allow you to numerically integrate a wide class of highly oscillatory functions automatically. Mathematica 8 reaches a new high-water mark in exact linear algebra performance, and also includes a number of additions to the world's largest collection of special functions.
