Mathematica Course

  • To: MathGroup at yoda.physics.unc.edu
  • Subject: Mathematica Course
  • From: Andre Heck <Andre.Heck at cwi.nl>
  • Date: Mon, 02 Mar 1992 10:38:28 +0100

The Computer Algebra Netherlands Expertise Centre organises a one-day 
course in 
		   TM
	MATHEMATICA,

a computer system for doing mathematics. 
MATHEMATICA is a trade mark of Wolfram Research Inc.

The goal of the course is to attain enough experience with MATHEMATICA to
ensure an efficient and self-reliant usage of the various capabilities of 
the system. The comprehensive course will consist of both explanatory 
lectures and hands-on instruction on Silicon Graphics workstations.

FOR WHOM: 
The course is intended for people with little or no experience with 
MATHEMATICA. A background knowledge of mathematics at secondary school 
level is required.

CONTENTS: 
Topics include 
1. graphics (2 and 3-dimensional), 
2. algebraic and numerical computations (integration, differentiation, 
solving systems of equations or ordinary differential equations), and
3. an introduction to the input/output system, the help system and the
documentation.

WHERE:
This course will be held at the CWI, Amsterdam.

WHEN:
Thursday, March 26th, 1992.

PRICE: 
The total price will be Dfl 500,- (exclusive VAT).
This includes course material and lunch.

REGISTRATION:
The form below should be sent in before March 15.

MORE INFORMATION:


The Computer System MATHEMATICA

MATHEMATICA is an interactive computer system that performs numerical,
symbolic and graphical computations. Since its introduction in 1988, its use
has become quite widespread in engineering, research and education.
MATHEMATICA  is not only software for mathematical operations like 
integration,
differentiation and solving equations, it is also a versatile programming
language. Numerous packages have been written since its introduction. A
large library with special functions and physical constants is one of its
features. The graphical capabilities form an other outstanding feature.


The CAN Expertise Centre

CAN, the Expertise Centre for Computer Algebra in the Netherlands,
stimulates and coordinates the use of computer algebra in education and
research. CAN provides specialists and users with a common platform for
discussing problems of mutual interest. To this end, CAN maintains hardware
dedicated to computer algebra. The CAN computers can be used for production
runs and experimentation, and are easily accessible through modern
communication networks like SURFnet, Datanet and Internet. The staff of CAN
gives advice on the use of computer algebra and software
development. Furthermore, CAN serves as a distribution centre for computer
algebra systems, CAN organises seminars and meetings, and it publishes
regularly a newsletter. Also courses in several computer algebra systems are
organised, e.g. in MAPLE and MATHEMATICA.


The Instruction Team

The  MATHEMATICA lectures will be given by Leendert van Gastel. He has 
obtained a doctoral degree Mathematics in Utrecht. Later on he received a 
PhD in algebraic geometry. During his study he followed a didactical
training.  At this moment he is employed by CAN, primarily engaged in 
consultancy and in the development of seminars and courses.

The hands-on instruction will be assisted by several CAN staff members.
