Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Wolfram Notebooks

Giving ideas a broad communication pipeline—accelerating research, education and technical development

Wolfram Notebooks offer the preeminent environment for any technical workflows—data science, modeling, research and education—empowering users with literate programming, easy-to-author interactivity and universal deployment across all platforms.

Carefully designed to leverage familiar word-processing metaphors, Wolfram Notebooks are uniquely powerful interactive documents that support live computation, arbitrary dynamic interfaces, full typeset input, image input, automatic code annotation, a complete high-level programmatic interface and, in all, thousands of carefully organized functions and options. Wolfram pioneered the notebook in 1988 and has led innovation on the concept ever since; the notebook has now been widely adopted as the new paradigm for technical discourse and collaboration.
