New Materials on MathSource --------------------------- MathSource is an on-line collection of Mathematica notebooks, packages, documentation, and related-materials contributed by Mathematica users around the world and by the staff here at Wolfram Research. It is freely accessible via electronic mail, anonymous ftp, and direct dialup. For more information about MathSource, send an email message containing the line Help Intro to the MathSource server at MathSource at wri.com To obtain a full listing of all materials in MathSource, send an email message containing the line Find * to the MathSource server. The following list contains materials that have been added to the MathSource collection or updated with new versions since August 15, 1993. To have any of the materials in this list sent to you automatically, send an email message containing the command Send XXXX-XXX to the MathSource server at MathSource at wri.com, where XXXX-XXX is the item-number given in the listing. Questions and comments about MathSource should be addressed to ms-admin at wri.com. ============================================================= New materials in MathSource for the period 8/15/93 -- 9/15/93 0205-254: C, FORTRAN77, Maple and TeX Code Generation Package (August 23, 1993) Author: Mark Sofroniou Format.m is a package which extends Mathematica's built-in formatting rules. The author gives examples of shortcomings of the standard rules where code generated may not be syntactically correct and of appropriate precision. The package and documentation address these shortcomings and extend the formatting rules to include lists as data objects and assignments to expressions. Demonstrations are included that show the package may be used to considerably enhance and automate code generation. The result is a symbiosis of symbolic-numeric environments built upon the existing Splice communication process. Finally, we conclude with some examples from applied numerical mathematics, where the package has been used to establish a generalized formulation to a problem via the use of a template file. 0011: README.txt Author's notes (August 23, 1993; 2 kilobytes) 0022: Format.m Mathematica package (August 23, 1993; 56 kilobytes) 0033: Manual.ma Documentation in Notebook form (August 23, 1993; 139 kilobytes) 0044: Manual.tex Documentation in LaTeX form (August 23, 1993; 88 kilobytes) 0055: driver.f main driver routine (June 29, 1993; 1 kilobyte) 0066: example.mf simple FORTRAN77 main routine template file (June 29, 1993; 1 kilobyte) 0077: func.mf FORTRAN77 function routine template file (June 29, 1993; 1 kilobyte) 0088: newton.mf FORTRAN77 template file for Newton's method.

Cohen Mathematica package implementing several different methods of approximate numerical integration; including Riemann Sum, left and right endpoint rules, trapezoid rule, midpoint rule, Simpson's rule, and Newton's method. Also contains a fix for the infamous cube root problem (i.e., the negative root, instead of a complex one is selected for (-1)^(p/q), when q is odd and p/q is in lowest terms). This file is intended to be part of the student environment via init.m. This tools package is part of a larger collection of courseware from the Colorado School of Mines.

At the discontinuity, the second derivative of the function assumes very high absolute values. This is used to locate the discontinuities and to omit them from the plot. You can use the Threshold-option in order to give the threshold value for the second derivative (if the second derivative exceeds the threshold value at a particular point, the point is omitted from the plot). 0000: DiscontinuityPlot.doc Documentation for DiscontinuityPlot.m package (August 14, 1993; 2 kilobytes) 0011: DiscontinuityPlot.m Mathematica package (August 14, 1993; 3 kilobytes) 0204-938: Introduction to Programmimng with Mathematica (August 27, 1993) Author: Richard J.

Wellin; published by TELOS -- Springer-Verlag, ISBN 0-387-94048-0. The notebooks follow the chapter organization. In addition to the notebooks for each chapter, files Chapx.m that contain the same material as Chapx.ma, but in a package format are included.

MathLink is easy to use for anyone who is familiar with Mathematica and another programming language. This guide gives you an introduction to MathLink along with a handy reference for the MathLink functions you can use in your programs. 0011: MathLinkRef.ps PostScript document (September 3, 1993; 372 kilobytes) 0205-423: MSDOSPS.EXE for Mathematica 2.2.1 for MS-DOS (August 25, 1993) Author: Wolfram Research Improved video and sound support for MS-DOS platforms running Mathematica V 2.2.1. VESA and 8514/a modes are available. SoundBlaster is supported; however, -irq and -io options must be specified.

Note: The files Nixpub.short and Nixpub.long contain a list of public-access Unix sites that Wolfram Research believes that you may use for the purpose of gaining access to MathSource. Wolfram Research has no involvement in the operation of these sites and does not make any recommendations with regards to their use. 0011: Nixpub.short abbreviated listing (August 24, 1993; 14 kilobytes) 0022: Nixpub.long long, detailed listing (August 24, 1993; 62 kilobytes) 0204-062: NonNegativeQ (August 31, 1993) Author: Stephan Kaufmann The Mathematica functions Positive, Negative and NonNegative evaluate for numbers only. They can be used to define properties of symbols but for combinations of such symbols, the properties are not evaluated any further. The function NonNegativeQ tries to find out if the result cannot be negative. In such cases, it returns True, otherwise False. 0011: NonNegativeQ.m Mathematica Package (August 31, 1993; 3 kilobytes) 0022: NonNeg-Notebook.ma Package in Notebook form (August 31, 1993; 13 kilobytes) 0033: NN-Info.txt Installation instructions (August 31, 1993; 1 kilobyte) 0203-768: Notebook to TeX Converter for NeXT Platforms (September 7, 1993) Author: Bo Liu nb2tex is a Mathematica Notebook to TeX file conversion utility. nb2tex converts all versions of Mathematica Notebooks to .tex files that can be processed with TeX.

After several Mathematica sessions, it may be difficult to keep track of which input belongs to which session. This modified version of Record.m adds the "Date" function to help solve this problem. The modifications to the original Record.m package are clearly marked. 0011: Record.m Mathematica package (August 26, 1993; 1 kilobyte) =============================================================
