Hi, a) ("sqrt(2) * log(Pi)") is not plain english and Mathematica will only understand Sqrt[2]*Log[Pi] b) Mathematica is an interpreter not a library, so you need always the Mathematica kernel and an installation of Mathematica c) you can call any function of the Mathematica kernel at runtime but you must launch a kernel and send the data via .NET/Link Regards Jens "x" <x at y.z> schrieb im Newsbeitrag news:d4ms0o$1vd$1 at smc.vnet.net... > Hi all, > > I'm investigating the usage of Mathematica in a > project.
