Mathematica is an integrated software system that offers unprecedented workflow, coherence, reliability and innovation to deliver an advanced technical computing environment.

The software seamlessly integrates a numeric and symbolic computational engine, graphics system, programming language, documentation system, and advanced connectivity to other applications.

An amazing yet easy-to-use calculator at the superficial level, Mathematica is more than a computation software and can be used for modelling, simulation, visualisation, development, documentation, and deployment.

While working through calculations, a notebook document keeps a complete report encompassing inputs, outputs and graphics in an interactive but typeset form. Adding text, headings, formulas from a textbook, or even interface elements is straightforward, making online slide show, web, XML, or printed presentations immediately available from the original material.

Notebook document technology allows a fully customised interface to be easily provided so that recipients can interact with the content. The notebook is a fully featured, fully integrated technical document creation environment.

Top 8 reasons to upgrade to Mathematica 8 software:

  • Enter queries in plain English using new free-form linguistic input
  • Access more than 10 trillion sets of curated, up-to-date, and ready-to-use data from Wolfram|Alpha, the world's first computational knowledge engine
  • Import all data into the workflow using a wider array of import/export formats including elevation, satellite, seismology, microarray, graph and even the latest Microsoft Excel file format
  • Use broad statistical distributions and data visualisation capabilities including many new statistical and financial charts that take full advantage of Mathematica 8's automation and flexibility for clearer results
  • Choose from a full suite of built-in engineering tools such as wavelets and control systems
  • Use powerful image processing and analysis capabilities with many new algorithms in areas like filtering, segmentation, shape analysis and feature detection
  • Create interactive tools for rapid exploration of ideas including charts of results, interactive models, or prototyped projects using Mathematica 8's Manipulate command
  • Develop faster and more powerful applications with new support for CUDA and OpenCL GPU computation; also compiling directly to C with new code generation tools
Mathematica 8 is available from Hearne Scientific Software .
