Software Overview

Wolfram Research Mathematica is an application that helps you create and simulate technical workflows. It lets you professionally develop, model, simulate, and visualize 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, which automatically converts 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 a large collection of formulas to help with three-dimensional modeling, social network analysis, and other complex calculations. The software can pull data from a variety of locations, even APIs from social networks. Once you retrieve your data, you can then analyze, visualize, and deploy the data with the variety of useful tools provided by Mathematica.

The front end aspect of Mathematica provides a UI that enables the creation and editing of Notebook documents. These .NB files allow mathematical results to be viewed and can be exported to many different formats, such as GIS, raster graphic, and spreadsheet formats.

Mathematica is used by many professional companies to organize and visualize their workflow. It is used in areas such as financial modeling, aerospace engineering, medical imaging, social network analysis, and more. Wolfram Research Mathematica is one of the best options for professionally managing your workflows.
