Wolfram Research Mathematica is an application that helps you create and simulate technical workflows in various contexts, including financial modeling, medical imaging, and aerospace engineering. It comes with many features for developing, modeling, simulating, and visualizing small to large data sets in diverse fields.

Mathematica helps you perform functions from daily computations to large-scale solutions. The program provides free-form input, automatically converting English sentences into Mathematica code. The auto-generated source code is fully editable, so you can make custom edits. The kernel aspect of the application then interprets the Mathematica code, and returns result expressions.

Mathematica offers many formulas to help with three-dimensional modeling, social network analysis, and other complex calculations. The software can pull data from various locations, even APIs from social networks. Once you retrieve your data, you can analyze, visualize, and deploy it with the variety of valuable tools Mathematica provides.

The front-end aspect of Mathematica provides a UI that enables the creation and editing of Notebook documents (.NB files). You can view the mathematical results in the documents and export them to various formats, such as GIS, raster graphics, and spreadsheet file types.


Many professional companies, including those in financial modeling, aerospace engineering, medical imaging, and social network analysis, use Mathematica to organize and visualize their workflows. The software provides an array of tools to develop, model, simulate, and visualize small to large data sets in diverse fields, making Wolfram Research Mathematica one of the best options for managing your workflows professionally.
