Mathematica is renowned as the world's ultimate application for computations.

Overview

Mathematica is a technical computing software program built to enable powerful computation and data analysis in STEM fields, Business and Finance, and even Liberal Arts and Humanities. Mathematica pairs with Wolfram|Alpha to allow users to compute "as they think."  Mathematica also integrates with many other software programs and allows for grid computing on dedicated research clusters and ad-hoc/distributed grid environments. Finally, Mathematica is available in the cloud through any web browser as well as natively on all modern desktop systems.

Eligibility

Mathematica and Wolfram products are freely available to all at Temple, students faculty and staff.
