Mathematica is a comprehensive and effective software solution geared towards users who need to perform complex computations ranging from building a hedge-fund trading website to developing embedded algorithms or calculus.
Since it comes with an extensive collection of math functions such as square roots, exponential functions, factorials and prime factors, the program allows you to use various formulas with ease. However, you must be aware that all the function arguments are enclosed in square brackets, not parentheses.
Also, with the help of Mathematica you can make use of various formulas of all types, starting with polynomials and ending up with combinations of higher mathematical functions.
The main window of the application is very intuitive and easy to work with. The first floating bar contains all of the available options you can work with, while the second window displays your formulas and math calculations.
First off, you are required to create a new notebook, package, demonstration, text file or slideshow. After that, you are able to insert special characters, tables, horizontal lines, pictures, hiperlinks and citations, open a new file or break the current page.
By accessing the Format menu you are able to modify the style, clear the formatting options, change the stylesheet, set the font type, style and size and choose the background color you are interested in.
The Graphics menu enables you to access the ‘Drawing Tools’ window and work with objects such as polygons, rectangles, line segments, disks, texts, points, arrows and coordinates.
Because it can be used in various industries and here referring to finance, modeling, software development, engineering or even astronomy, Mathematica allows you to get reliable results without roundoff analysis and apply great automation features in every part of your system, from embedded image-recognition algorithms to plot layout.
To conclude, Mathematica proves to be a steady and full-featured solution worth having when you need to perform precised calculations and complicated number crunching.
