Courses on Applied Statistics
Course number 424
Mathematica is a computer algebra system that is particularly suited for
carrying out mathematics in all its facets. Mathematica is based on a consistent language. Mathematica is not just a programme for symbolic
computations, the Mathematica package itself contains all important numerical and graphic possibilities. Add-ons for working with
OpenGL, for a seamless integration of Java applications, for connection with Matlab et cetera are standard tools.
Since version 3, technical scientific text-processing facilities have been added to Mathematica. Books can be
produced from Mathematica without interference of other packages.
In the present releases the speed of numerical calculations is even maximal, so it is comparable to standard
Mathematica offers the user an integrated environment for perpetrating mathematics, from executing draft
calculations and experimenting to the production of publications and making presentations.
For our university, WEB-Mathematica is available free of charge. With WEB-Mathematica making interactive
(mathematic) web pages becomes a piece of cake. The W3C-standard for technical scientific texts in the Web,
MathML, has been set notably by Mathematica.
The following subjects will be treated:
- symbolic calculations
- numerical calculations
- graphic facilities
- the internal structure of Mathematica
- working with text documents (notebooks)

The language of communication can be either Dutch or English, to be
decided by mutual arrangement with the students.
||Standard package Mathematics for first year university students
