webMathematica 2.1 Delivers Web Computations with the Increased Speed and Scope
of Mathematica 5
April 27, 2004--webMathematica now includes the high-performance
Mathematica 5, adding more speed and options for real-time, interactive web
applications. In addition to introducing a host of innovative features, Mathematica
5 delivers large performance gains in dense numerical linear algebra, support for sparse
numerical linear algebra, large-scale linear programming, arbitrary-precision computation,
and interprocess communication speed.
webMathematica 2.1 is also enhanced with powerful new development
options and support for additional graphic, web, and matrix file formats. These new
formats--including the popular PNG web bitmap format, the vector graphic format SVG,
and the medical DICOM standard--give developers more choices in creating their
"We chose webMathematica for math rendering because it has an unrivaled feature
set," says Brandon Lee, CEO of Terra Dotta, a company that provides learning solutions for
schools, universities, and businesses. "It does what no other math product can do."
While the new functionality of webMathematica 2.1 offers authors more options for
building applications, the Mathematica 5 speed improvements ensure quick delivery
of these applications to users. Support for the latest 64-bit platforms and servers allows
substantially faster processing of computationally intensive webMathematica
Designed to help developers deliver fast, dynamic websites for their users,
webMathematica solves the problem of how to create and distribute
technical computing application solutions in today's networked environment. Built on
platform-independent standards such as HTML, Java, and Java Servlet technology,
webMathematica 2.1 seamlessly integrates the advances of Mathematica 5 into
virtually any infrastructure.
