Technical Computing with Mathematica: Capabilities, Design, and Applications

Wolfram Research Tour of India
September 10-18, 2001



This talk will provide an overview of Mathematica's capabilities, its applicability to different areas of technical work, and the underlying design philosophy that makes technical computing possible. Practical examples will be computed live during the seminar, both to give an idea of the system's capabilities and to demonstrate design principles.
