The Wolfram Research Tour of Russia and Ukraine consists of a series of lecture presentations by Oleksandr Pavlyk. His lecture uses Mathematica to demonstrate how its design and key technologies mesh to make it the technical software of choice for a wide variety of applications. Following each presentation, Pavlyk will answer questions from the audience and share his insights as both a mathematician and developer.

Mathematica is currently being used in hundreds of academic institutions, research labs, and financial organizations around the world. It can be used as both an interactive calculation tool and a programming language. As a completely integrated numerical, symbolic, and graphical system, Mathematica is an ideal tool for prototyping algorithms, modeling, and experimenting.

Who Should Attend

Anyone with an interest in the potential impact of technical computing on education and research will benefit from this lecture. Mathematica novices will gain an overview of the system and an introduction to software design, while experts will gain further understanding of specific design decisions.
