Complete development environment enabling the creation of demonstrations, numeric and symbolic computations, programming and slide shows via the notebook interface, a web browser or by other systems as a back-end computational engine.

Mathematica is a complete development environment enabling the creation of demonstrations, numeric and symbolic computations, programming and slide shows. It can be used directly via the notebook interface, via a web browser or by other systems as a back-end computational engine.

Functions work for any size or precision of number, compute with symbols and can be represented graphically. It is possible to switch algorithms to obtain the optimal answer and to check and adjust the accuracy of results. A notebook document provides a complete report including inputs, outputs and graphics in an interactive typeset form. Add text, headings, formulas from a textbook or interface elements to create an online slide show, web, XML or printed presentation. Mathematica packages can be debugged using Wolfram Workbench, encapsulated and wrapped in a custom user interface. Java, C or links to a proprietary system can use Mathematica behind the scenes. Mathlink includes MM software for loading legacy code or existing files into a MM notebook.

Key Features:

  • Authoring and deploying CDFs: create interactive CDF books, reports, or applications with Mathematica 8 and freely distribute them as web objects or desktop applications.
  • Software development: built-in GPU programming support, high-performance C code generation, SymbolicC support and expanded parallel processing.
  • CUDA and OpenCL support: build GPU computation into your programs using new support for CUDA and OpenCL environments.
  • Mathematica shell scripts: use high-level Mathematica language to make scripts invoked from the command shell.
  • Image processing: offers a complete environment and interactive workflow for image processing and analysis.
  • Graphs and networks: fully integrated into Mathematica, including high-performance scalable data structures, advanced aesthetics and broad modeling and analysis capabilities.
  • Statistics visualisations: new statistics charts, including box whisker charts, quantile plots and paired bar charts and histograms with Mathematica's automation and flexibility.
  • Illustration and drawing tools: illustrate ideas or annotate graphics using improved drawing tools, including dynamic guides.
  • 2D and 3D graphics: texture mapping of images to 3D surfaces with full hardware acceleration, built-in curve and filled curve primitives and other new features.
  • Interactive financial charts: users can create customised interactive financial charts, applying more than 100 built-in financial indicators to their own data or built-in data feeds.
  • Dense numerical linear algebra: dense numerical linear algebra is used for most Mathematica numerical analysis functionality including data analysis over matrix operations, numerical differential equation solvers and graphics.
  • High-speed sparse linear algebra: implementation of sparse linear algebra enables arrays of any dimension or rank and is integrated fully with the Mathematica system.
  • Large-scale linear programming: optimised for solving large-scale linear programming problems using an interior-point method.

Mathematica - Features

Current features

  • Authoring and deploying CDFs: Create interactive CDF books, reports, or applications with Mathematica 8 and freely distribute them as web objects or desktop applications.
  • Web embedding and free Wolfram CDF player: Embed CDFs as objects within web pages or view them as full-screen documents within a browser using the free CDF Player. The free Player offers full Mathematica 8 compatibility.

  Mathematica 8 has been fully tested on all major Linux distributions based on the 2.6 Linux kernel. On newer Linux distributions, additional compatibility libraries may need to be installed.
Mathematica has supported an X Window System front end since Version 2.2 (released in 1993). In Version 7, it utilises the Qt application framework for its user interface, the same used by the major Linux desktop environment KDE. Nightly tests are run on both enterprise and popular open-source Linux distributions.

  Solaris 10 UltraSPARC

* Also runs on 64-bit PPC hardware.
** 64-bit support requires OS X 10.4.10.
