Mathematica: A Speed Date

Estimated Time: 23 min

Course Level: Beginner


This course provides a whirlwind tour of Mathematica, showing how decades of research in computation, language and development together with well-thought-out design principles and solid software engineering have guided us in creating a modern computing platform. Key features, including dynamic interactivity, natural language input and numerical/symbolic computation, as well as applications in image processing, control systems, GPU computation and more, will be explored.

Featured Products & Technologies: Wolfram Language (available in Mathematica and Wolfram|One)
