Mathematica - Symbolic Mathematics

Mathematica is a mathematics modelling program that has been installed on the virtual lab where licenses can be used on university owned computers on campus.

Students can buy discounted licenses through Wolfram's Web store, but if you're teaching with Mathematica or if a significant quantity of students will be purchasing licenses, please contact Craig Bauling to enquire about larger discounts.

Mathematica has also been installed on HPC training machines. These computers are running Linux, and Mathematica requires the X11 windowing system to provide a graphical interface. (Mathematica also requires special fonts to be downloaded and installed for this.)

To run Mathematica without the graphical interface, the command math can be used.

Mathematica Training

A quick start guide on Mathematica is available on the Wolfram training pages.
