Mathematica Days Brochure
Here is an electronic version of the Mathematica Days brochure: ********************* 1993 MATHEMATICA DAYS Each Mathematica Day will give attendees a practical introduction to Mathematica. If you are interested in getting started with Mathematica, learning how it can benefit you at work, or seeing how others are using the system, attend a Mathematica Day near you. Come see why Mathematica is the standard for technical computing in science, engineering, finance, and education today. ________________________________________________________________________ SCHEDULE USA Ann Arbor, Michigan Saturday, September 11, 1993 University of Michigan Chemistry Building 8:30am - 7:00pm Boston, Massachusetts Saturday, September 18, 1993 Boston University Tsai Performance Center 8:30am - 7:00pm EUROPE Paris, France Friday, October 22, 1993 ESIEE Cite Descartes Noisy-Le-Grand 8:30am - 7:00pm London, England Tuesday, October 26, 1993 Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre Broad Sanctuary, Westminster 8:30am - 7:00pm Frankfurt, Germany Friday, October 29, 1993 Sheraton Frankfurt Hotel Flughafen Terminal-Mitte 8:30am - 7:00pm ________________________________________________________________________ OPENING ADDRESS STEPHEN WOLFRAM Principal architect of Mathematica and President of Wolfram Research, Inc. "Mathematica and the Future of Technical Computing" ________________________________________________________________________ TUTORIALS INTRODUCTION TO MATHEMATICA gets you started doing numeric, symbolic, and graphical computation. Learn how to solve equations, visualize data, and manipulate polynomials, power series expansions, matrices, and graphs. PROGRAMMING WITH MATHEMATICA will show you how to use the powerful programming language that is built into Mathematica. You will learn how to create functions and programs to customize Mathematica for your specific applications. MATHEMATICA GRAPHICS will show you how to visualize data, generate presentation-quality output, and take advantage of graphics packages built into Mathematica. Starting with Mathematica's basic plotting commands, you will also learn how to create custom plots, animations, and sounds. USING MATHEMATICA NOTEBOOKS will show you how to use interactive documents in Mathematica that combine text, computations, graphics, and sound. Learn how to use notebooks to create courseware, project reports, technical presentations, and publication-quality documents. HOW TO INTERFACE MATHEMATICA WITH EXTERNAL PROGRAMS introduces MathLink, Mathematica's high-level communication protocol. With MathLink you can call programs written in languages such as C from within Mathematica, or call Mathematica from within external programs. MathLink also supports more complicated arrangements such as communication between concurrent Mathematica processes. ADVANCED TOPICS IN MATHEMATICA will explore the fundamental structure of Mathematica and will show how the programming capabilities and the internal functions connect with features such as MathLink and the expression compiler. The ideas presented will help attendees to maximize the power of Mathematica as an extensible and efficient system for technical computing. ________________________________________________________________________ APPLICATION DISCUSSIONS MATHEMATICA IN ENGINEERING brings an experienced panel of engineers together to discuss various engineering applications of Mathematica. Panelists will discuss how they use Mathematica in their daily work in areas such as signal processing, heat transfer, neural networks, thermodynamics, circuits, fluid mechanics, and finite element analysis. MATHEMATICA IN EDUCATION will feature a panel of educators who will discuss their experiences in teaching with Mathematica and show you how to create your own interactive courseware with Mathematica. MATHEMATICA IN FINANCE will feature a panel of experienced Mathematica users in the financial community. Panelists will give a first-hand description of how they use Mathematica in their daily work. ________________________________________________________________________ OPEN LAB Each Mathematica Day will feature a Mathematica computer lab hosted by Wolfram Research technical support and R & D staff. Attendees will be able to use the lab at any time during the day to ask questions and experiment with Mathematica, discuss personal applications of Mathematica, practice new techniques, and learn from various on-line and printed tutorial notes provided by Wolfram Research. ________________________________________________________________________ ABOUT MATHEMATICA Mathematica includes a full range of interactive numerical, graphical, and symbolic computation capabilities, all linked to the powerful Mathematica programming language. Used by engineers, scientists, students, financial analysts, medical researchers, and educators around the world, Mathematica is available on Macintosh, PC, Windows, and Unix systems.
