Mathematica 7 introduces a new level of automation in mathematical typesetting. Building on two decades of experience, Mathematica 7 uses a large number of new algorithms and heuristics developed at Wolfram Research to generate traditional mathematical notation that exhibits the clarity and elegance of hand-crafted mathematics written by mathematical experts—but on an arbitrarily large scale.
- Extensive heuristics for optimal traditional ordering of polynomials, rational expressions, functions, etc. »
- Optimized heuristics for inline vs. built-up fractions, exponents, derivatives, etc.
- Extended capabilities for recognition of edited or input traditional mathematical notation.
- Automatic tooltips identifying functions appearing in traditional notation.
- A new family of "formal symbol" characters used to represent dummy variables. »
- New notation for pure functions. »
- Special notation for discrete difference and other discrete calculus operators. »
- Special notation for additional Boolean operators. »
