Q: How does MathCode work?
MathCode C++ and MathCode F90 take functions written in Mathematica and
generate correct C++ or Fortran functions, respectively, and then link them
into an executable.
Q: How much speedup can I expect?
MathCode can achieve a speedup of up to 1000 times.
Q: Can MathCode speed up symbolic transformations?
No, in this case you should use the Mathematica function Compile.
Please contact MathCore support at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding the
compilable Mathematica subset of MathCode.
Q: Does MathCode contain a runtime system?
Yes, the runtime system comes together with MathCode and it is linked to
your generated C++ or Fortran code. Thanks to this runtime system, you
can efficiently perform numerical computations on scalars and matrices
and apply many standard Mathematica functions.
Q: Is MathCode compatible with Mathematica application packages?
Yes, but in some cases there might be some conflicts. Please contact
MathCore support at email@example.com if you plan to use MathCode
together with other Mathematica application packages.
Q: Does MathCode have a type system?
Yes, the user has to add data type information to the variables used in
his/her function. This makes it possible to generate very efficient,
clear, and straightforward code.
Q: Which data types does MathCode support?
MathCode supports scalars, matrices, and tensors of integer and double
and complex numbers.
Q: Are declarations generated?
Yes, as soon as the user supplies data type information for Mathematica
variables, it is used in order to generate corresponding variable
declarations in C++ or Fortran code. This facilitates very efficient
handling of variables.
Q: What is the maximal matrix rank
The maximal matrix rank of MathCode is 4. This means that
four-dimensional matrices (K x L x M x N) can be used as a data type.
Q: Is the resulting code readable for humans?
Yes, MathCode C++ and MathCode F90 produce readable C++ and Fortran code,
Q: How much time does it take to start using it?
The built-in examples make it easy to get started with MathCode, and
typically it takes between 3-5 days.
Q: Is there any discount for academic institutions?
Yes, MathCode has a 70% discount for academic institutions.
Q: What is the current version of MathCode?
MathCode C++ 1.4.6 (1.4.7 for Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9) and MathCode F90 1.2.6 are the latest versions of MathCode.
Q: If I currently own an earlier version of MathCode, how do I get an
upgrade copy of MathCode?
MathCode has program support and a free update service for 12 months after purchasing a permanent license or an upgrade. After the
initial period, this service costs 20% of the price for a new license/year. If you have a valid support agreement and need to receive the
latest update, or if you need to renew your support, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Does MathCore offer MathCode consulting?
Yes, MathCore offers consulting in many different application areas.
Please contact email@example.com for more information.
Q: Does MathCore offer MathCode courses?
Yes, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on what
courses are offered by MathCore.
Q: Does MathCore include a support contract for MathCode?
Yes, MathCode has program support and a free update service for 12
months after purchasing a permanent license or an upgrade. After the
initial period, this service costs 20% of the price for a new
license/year. If you want to renew your support, please contact
