MathSource Gopher, FTP, What's New
*To*: mathgroup at yoda.physics.unc.edu
*Subject*: MathSource Gopher, FTP, What's New
*From*: msadmin (MathSource Administrator)

The new year brings many changes to MathSource, including the
availability of a Gopher server; a new organizational scheme
for FTP and Gopher access; self-extracting archives for email
users; and more.
For general information about MathSource, send an email
message containing the line "Help Intro" (no quotes) to the
MathSource server at mathsource at wri.com.
New FTP Organization
--------------------
Foremost is the implementation of a new categorization
hierarchy for the MathSource FTP and Gopher sites. This new
organization makes it easier to find the MathSource items you
are looking for. Related MathSource items are also grouped
more closely than before. A brief outline of the new
organization is given below. For more information, see the
file /pub/README on the MathSource FTP site
(mathsource.wri.com [IP# 140.177.10.5]).
The MathSource directory organization begins with five
category choices on the top level: General, Enhancements,
Applications, Publications, and NumberedItems.
General: contains item of general interest to the Mathematica
community, (i.e., archives, demos, administrative
information, etc.) along with system-specific utilities,
tools, and tips.
Enhancements: contains items that are enhancements to the
Mathematica system. They enhance the functionality of
Mathematica beyond the basic kernel.
Applications: deals with the application of Mathematica to
specific problems and subject areas.
Publications: includes books, journals, periodicals, press
announcements, Mathematica documentation,
bibliographical information, technical reports, and notes.
NumberedItems: If you know the specific item number of the
material you're interested in, you can get it here without
moving through multiple directory levels.
Each of these categories is further divided into several
sub-categories, which are fairly descriptive and
self-explanatory. At the lowest level of each directory,
MathSource items are identified by their item-numbers. An
index file (00-Index) in each directory lists the contents of
that directory along with the item title. For more
information, a .README file exists for each item providing
detailed information about the file sizes and contents for
each individual item. At the top level, the file maplist
provides a mapping of the MathSource item numbers and their
corresponding directory locations.
MathSource Gopher
-----------------
The MathSource Gopher server has been receiving a tremendous
response since its initial announcement. The MathSource
Gopher server allows users to access all material available to
FTP and Email users and conduct a full-text search of the
MathSource contents. Additionally, MathSource Gopher users
enjoy links to other Mathematica FTP and Gopher sites around
the world. To take advantage of this service, point your Gopher
at mathsource.wri.com, port 70.
Self-extracting Archives
------------------------
Email users will soon enjoy the ease of self-extracting
archives from MathSource. These new methods will result in
fewer messages being sent in response to a given request, and an
easier extraction process once the files are received. This
feature is currently being beta-tested and is expected to go
on-line in March.
New Items in MathSource
-----------------------
The following items have been updated or added to the
MathSource collection since December 15, 1993.
0205-366: Applied Mathematica: Getting Started, Getting It Done (January 11,
1994)
Authors: William Shaw and Jason Tigg
This material contains the longer code sections from Applied
Mathematica, by William T. Shaw and Jason Tigg, published by
Addison-Wesley in December 1993. This book shows how Mathematica
can be used to solve problems in the applied sciences. The code
includes specialized graphics; several MathLink examples,
including C code and template files; and some extended data
analysis examples.

0206-019: The Limits of Mathematics --- Course Outline and Software
(December 29, 1993)
Author: Gregory J. Chaitin
A remarkable new definition of a self-delimiting universal Turing
machine is presented that is easy to program and runs very
quickly. This provides a new foundation for algorithmic
information theory. This new universal Turing machine is
implemented via software written in Mathematica and C. Using this
new software, it is now possible to give a self-contained "hands
on" mini-course presenting very concretely the latest proofs of
the fundamental information-theoretic incompleteness theorems.

0206-031: Linear Lattice-Ligand Binding Notebooks (January 11, 1994)
Author: Alan R. Wolfe
These Mathematica notebooks calculate and plot data for the
binding of ligands to an infinite linear lattice. Binding site
overlap and cooperative interactions between adjacent bound
ligands are taken into account. This is a mathematical model for
non-sequence-selective binding of proteins and other small
molecules (ligands) to a linear macromolecule such as DNA (the
lattice). The method used is based on the treatment given in
Wolfe, A. R. & Meehan, T. (1992) J. Mol. Biol. 223, 1063-1087.

0206-020: Pseudo-Random Pulse Sequencing (January 4, 1994)
Author: Erik Jensen
The package PseudoRandom.m defines a few routines that are useful
for working with pseudorandom sequences. These sequences (also
called Maximum Length PseudoRandon Sequences or MLPRS's) have been
used in optimizing time-of-flight spectroscopies in the physical
sciences (neutron beam and molecular beam scattering).

0206-008: Solution to a System of Ordinary Differential Equations with
Mixed, Algebraic, Boundary Conditions (December 29, 1993)
Author: Richard C. Miller
This notebook illustrates the solution of four simultaneous
ordinary differential equations with three constant initial
boundary conditions and one algebraic final boundary condition.
Forward shooting was used to solve the linear system. The example
provided illustrates the temperature profile of an infinitely long
cylindrical reactor where the internal reaction is temperature
dependent

0206-042: The Stellated Icosahedra (January 7, 1994)
Author: Roman E. Maeder
The enumeration of all stellations of the icosahedron was
accomplished in 1938. The geometric constructions and
combinatorial algorithms used can easily be programmed in
Mathematica. Its symbolic and graphic capabilities make it well
suited to render the solids in a variety of formats. Icosahedra.m
is a package for rendering all 59 stellations of the icosahedron.
Some examples for its use are in the notebook Icosahedra.ma.

0204-848: Tools of Tensor Calculus (January 4, 1994)
Authors: X. Jaen and E. Llanta
The TTC package implements some of the basic tools of tensor
calculus in a differentiable manifold. One works with the full
expression of tensors expressed in terms of their components on
any coordinate basis. This structure permits to define all
operators in an intrinsic way.
A tool for changing the coordinates of any tensor is provided.
This change of basis mechanism allows the simultaneous use, during
the same session, of the different expressions of the same tensor
when written in several coordinate bases. The same mechanism is
also useful to define submanifolds of any dimension and perform
restrictions of tensors defined on the manifold.
