Mathematica

Description

Mathematica is a highly sophisticated computational software package developed by Wolfram Research that covers the breadth and depth of technical computing. The current release, Mathematica 11.1, features a natural language interface and built-in integration with Wolfram|Alpha, the manufacturer's online computational engine. It combines numeric and symbolic computation with data visualization and programming capabilities.

Wolfram|Alpha is available at no charge to Penn faculty, staff, and students.
