Wolfram Research Inc. has released
Mathematica 5.2, an updated version of their software that’s used for computation and data visualization, analysis, physics modeling and more. The new release provides 64-bit support for all supported platforms, and adds support for multicore CPUs.
Mathematica 5.2 also supports automatically threaded numerical linear algebra, which enables linear algebra operations to automatically run in parallel. Sixty-four-bit enhanced arbitrary-precision numerics, vector-based performance enhancements, SSH support for remote kernels, vCard and RSS import and many other changes have also been made.
Mathematica 5.2 carries a suggested retail price of US$1,880 including one year of Premier Service. System requirements call for a G3 or faster and Mac OS X v10.2 or later, though 64-bit support calls for a G5 with Mac OS X v10.4 or later.
