China to Host Upcoming Mathematica Lecture Tour on
Education and Research
March 24, 2006--Wolfram Research announced today that China will host
the next Mathematica Lecture Series tour, May 19-31, 2006, in Changchun,
Tianjin, Beijing, Xi'an, Guangzhou, Nanjing, Shanghai, and Changsha. Led by senior Mathematica kernel developer Dr. Yifan Hu, this first-ever Wolfram
Research Tour of China will explore the impact of Mathematica's
groundbreaking technologies on a wide variety of fields and provide
unique insights into the future of technical computing.
The Tour begins as a record number of users in China are adopting
Mathematica for large-scale applications in industry, research, and
education. Dr. Hu will detail the latest advances that make this work
possible, lending a rare inside look at Mathematica's development and
design. In addition to a general overview of the system, his lectures,
presented in Chinese, will showcase key advantages over other systems
that make Mathematica the software of choice at major institutions
around the world--including all of China's top ten universities. A
question-and-answer session will follow each presentation.
"Compared to any other software on the market, Mathematica is the
easiest and most powerful for programming, specialized applications,
visualization, and equation solving of any kind," said Professor Dazheng
Ding of Beijing Union University. "It is the best assistant I could have
in teaching mathematics."
Mathematica novices, experts, and others interested in the future of
technical computing are encouraged to attend. All attendees will receive
a free save-enabled trial CD of Mathematica. Space is limited and a high
turnout is expected, so early registration is strongly recommended.
More information, including registration details and a full schedule,
is available on the tour
website. Media interviews with Dr. Hu can be arranged by
