26, 2001--Mathematica for Mac OS X is now shipping. This
native version of Mathematica for Mac OS X from Wolfram Research,
offers users significant speed gains and vastly improved stability
compared to running Mathematica on earlier Macintosh operating
Mathematica users and industry insiders have eagerly anticipated
release of this version, one of the first serious technical applications
to take full advantage of the extensive new features and technological
advances in Mac OS X. "Mathematica for Mac OS X behaves
efficient, purposeful software...certainly one of the world's greatest
applications, running on the greatest platform available. The product
reminds one of a sleek Russian mink," says Richard Crandall, Apple
"The Mach 3.0 kernel and Unix-like foundation of Mac OS X allow this
version of Mathematica to far surpass older Macintosh versions of
Mathematica in speed, scalability, and the ability to handle
requiring open-ended amounts of memory. Mac OS X is the first true
workstation operating system deployed as a personal-computer operating system,"
says Theodore Gray, cofounder of Wolfram
Research and chief architect of the Mathematica user interface.
"We have been running Mathematica for Mac OS X internally for three
now and have worked closely with Apple to optimize its performance," adds
Gray. "Mathematica 4.1 running on Mac OS X has the makings of a
environment for scientific computing. It is a no-compromise combination of
speed, stability, capability, and ease."
Mathematica is the system that top professionals in industry,
and education turn to when they need to perform demanding calculations.
Mathematica 4.1, the current release, includes greatly enhanced
differential equation solvers and dramatic speed increases for statistical
Professionals are not the only ones who use Mathematica. Like the
Macintosh, Mathematica is popular in schools and on college
around the world. Students in engineering, mathematics, and other
technical fields use Mathematica to expand their knowledge and to
most serious number crunching. With Mathematica running on Mac OS
will be able to use the latest in Apple technology to make the most of
their educational opportunities.
