Wolfram Research will bring Mathematica, its technical computing system, to Mac OS X.
“We have been following the development of Mac OS X with great interest,” Theodore Gray, cofounder of Wolfram Research and chief architect of the Mathematica user interface, said in a press announcement. “Mathematica 4.1 running on Mac OS X has the makings of a remarkable environment for scientific computing. This promises to be a no-compromise combination of speed, stability, capability, and ease.”
Mathematica is a popular tool in many areas of scientific research, engineering analysis, modeling, and technical education from high school to graduate school. Mathematica is well known for its three-dimensional graphics, ability to handle arbitrary-precision arithmetic, symbolic-processing abilities, and dictionary-size hardback manual.
