Wolfram Research Prepares Mathematica for Mac OS X
Leading Technical Computing Software to Take Full Advantage of Mac OS
January 12, 2001--Wolfram Research announced today
that Mathematica, the world's leading technical computing system,
will be available in a version that takes full advantage of the unique
capabilities of Mac OS X.
"We have been following the development of Mac OS X with great interest,"
said Theodore Gray, cofounder of Wolfram Research and chief architect of
Mathematica user interface. "Mathematica 4.1 running on Mac
OS X has the
makings of a remarkable environment for scientific computing. This
promises to be a no-compromise combination of speed, stability,
capability, and ease."
"The supercomputing speed of Apple's Power Mac G4 provides an incredible
environment for scientific computing, and with Mac OS X's unparalleled
performance and ease of use, it's only going to get better," said Clent
Richardson, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations.
"Mathematica is the most powerful software for doing calculations
science, engineering, and mathematics, and we're thrilled to see Wolfram
take advantage of the incredible technologies Mac OS X has to offer."
Mathematica is the system that top professionals in industry,
education turn to when they need to perform demanding calculations. The
current release of Mathematica, Version 4.1, includes greatly
