is a high level programming language with strong
built-in symbolic, numerical and graphic capabilities.
Mathematica code is in general short, intuitive and can be
developed in a short time. You can download mathematica

The current version is Mathematica 6.0.
|You might use it just as a "calculator" (type "math" in a terminal) to differentiate
solve differential equations symbolically
or numerically (example lorentz.m ),
solve partial differential equations numerically (example heat.m ),
to plot surfaces (example surface.m ,
Level curves (example level.m ).
You might also just want to use it as a calculator with indefinite precision,
like for real numbers
or integers Factor.m .
It allows to implement and test efficiency of number theoretical algorithms as
for example Pollard.m , try to crack
encryption schemes (example Curley.m ),
or for illustrations of topics in Mathematics:
Julia.m , Henon.m ,
