This seminar is not currently scheduled.
This seminar gives a broad overview of Mathematica, including information on getting started;
numerical, symbolic, and graphic capabilities; programming; dynamic
interactivity; and new features, using example-driven material.
The seminar is presented by a senior member of the Wolfram Research technical staff.
- Basic Computations
Getting started using Mathematica, using palettes to simplify entry of expressions, basic syntax, creating simple dynamic content
- Compute & Visualize
Solving systems of equations, linear algebra (sparse and dense), regression and interpolation, solving equations, integration, numerical solution of differential equations, visualize functions/data/information
- Core Language
Programming paradigms (procedural, functional, rule-based), comparison of styles, pattern matching, programming with strings, prototyping algorithms, mathematical programs, parallel computation
- Data Manipulation
Importing data, fitting, interpolating, image processing, visualization, exporting to external programs
- Connection Technologies
Wolfram Workbench, J/Link, GUIKit, webMathematica, DatabaseLink, Web Services Link,
- Working with Documents
Classroom demonstrations, lab assignments, homework/quiz generators, animations, deployment with Wolfram CDF Player
