*********************

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.

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.
