The transition from "Resource Library" to "Information Center" has caused quite a mess apparently. In addition to the animated demos of Map, Thread, etc., a nice collection of tutorials has also disappeared. What's more, the new organization of MathSource leave much to be desired. Optimization and numerical methods in "Applied Mathematics" along with business and economics (!) while differential equations, wavelets, approximation theory are under Calculus and Analysis? Someone needs to talk to some applied mathematicians about what applied mathematics means! (Maybe go to a SIAM meeting.) Even the section on Mathematica Technology has certain packages in bizarre categories. Sorry for the rant... ---- Selwyn Hollis On Wednesday, February 26, 2003, at 02:43 AM, Murray Eisenberg wrote: > Somewhere on the Wolfram web site I recently found animations showing > how Map, Thread, Apply, etc., work.
