Mathematica Testimonials

"We use Mathematica in teaching math modeling, the entire calculus sequence, linear algebra, differential equations, and numerical analysis. We have found that once students use Mathematica in a course, they will naturally and independently use it in subsequent courses. It provides the student with a powerful and versatile investigative tool."

Dr. Bruce Torrence, Professor of Mathematics
Randolph-Macon College, Virginia, U.S.A.

"My connection with Mathematica is long-standing as I have been onboard since it was first produced and have used it for some time in my own research work. Now I am writing a book that uses Mathematica as a means of introducing students to problems of chemical engineering analysis.

"I see Mathematica as providing for a real acceleration of the pedagogy in this field. Rather than having endless debates regarding how best to integrate computing into the undergraduate curriculum, it is my contention that we settle the debate by moving rapidly in the direction of using Mathematica throughout the curriculum."

Dr. Henry C. Foley, Professor of Chemical Engineering
The Pennsylvania State University, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

"I use Mathematica in classes for Kinematics and Dynamics of Machines and for Vibrations and Rotodynamics. For the first time students are able to analyze and animate complex mechanisms. Mathematica is, in fact, a virtual lab in which students are able to change any system parameter and immediately see its effect."

Oleg Vinogradov, Professor of Mechanical Engineering
University of Calgary, Canada

"Lake Forest College has been using Mathematica for the past several years with the support of several grants from the National Science Foundation. I have also been using Mathematica more and more as a presentation tool in all my teaching, as well as in seminar presentation. Presentation notebooks are also stored on the mathematics department network for later use by interested students."

Dr. Ed Packel, Volwiler Professor of Mathematics
Lake Forest College, Illinois, U.S.A.

"Our Mathematica courseware brings mathematics to life for our students. It is such a pleasure to see our students plotting, calculating, smiling, and learning. And using it is easier than using a calculator."

Jerry Uhl, Professor of Mathematics
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, U.S.A.

"Mathematica is great, and well used around here. My graduate students all use it as well."

Dr. Erich P. Ippen, Elihu Thomson Professor of Electrical Engineering
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Massachusetts, U.S.A.

"Carnegie Mellon Research Institute is continually engaged in the development of novel devices and processes for industry and government. Mathematica is an important tool for modeling new concepts before undertaking the expense of building hardware prototypes. System parameters can be optimized in the Mathematica model so that the first hardware implementation can be much closer to final design."

Dr. William M. Kaufman, Vice President Emeritus for Applied Research
Carnegie Mellon University, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

"I was very pleased with the opportunity to examine Mathematica. It is a superb mathematical program. My colleagues in the Division of Engineering and in the Department of Physics have known Mathematica for many years and have a high opinion of it."

Dr. Jan Tauc, L. Herbert Ballou University Professor Emeritus of Engineering and Physics
Brown University, Rhode Island, U.S.A.

"Mathematica is a delight to use, and of enormous help in my work. I'm still only ramping up to explore all its strengths."

Dr. Sam Treiman, Eugene Higgins Professor of Theoretical Physics
Princeton University, New Jersey, U.S.A.

"Of all the mathematical software that I have, I have found Mathematica to be the most useful both for teaching (primarily applied mathematics in engineering) and in my research on theoretical plasma physics."

Dr. Ira B. Bernstein, Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Physics
Yale University, Connecticut, U.S.A.

"My students and I use Mathematica frequently in our research in experimental gravitation. We are engaged in precise tests of the Principle of Equivalence and in making a precise measurement of the Newtonian gravitational constant. We frequently use Mathematica's ability to provide analytic integrals that allow us to compute efficiently and accurately the gravitational effects of complicated mass distributions.... I find that students are eager to learn Mathematica and once they are familiar with it use it on a wide variety of problems."

Dr. Eric Adelberger, Professor of Physics
University of Washington, Washington, U.S.A.

"At this location we teach physics and do research in particle physics and the technology that supports it. That means that we have everything from data analysis and graphical displays thereof to engineering calculations in electrical and mechanical engineering to rather high-blown theoretical analysis. The great thing about Mathematica is that it can cover all these bases without balking, which is something that no other computing system can fully do. The ability to work with differential equations and almost all of the special functions makes it particularly attractive for us."

Dr. Maury Tigner, Professor of Physics
Cornell University, New York, U.S.A.
