The Washington D.C. area Mathematica Special Interest Group will meet on Friday, 20 April, at the SAIC Enterprise Center building in Tysons Corner (see directions below).

Early risers meet a few minutes before 7:00 in the morning for admission at the front desk, then we'll have a Dutch treat breakfast downstairs.  By about 7:30 we will move to one of the projector rooms. Our meetings include a prepared talk, informal discussion about Mathematica programming and applications, general questions, and new business.  We'll end around 9:00.

Dan Martinez will present two talks:  "World Line Construction and
Analysis", and "Von Neumann Arithmetic Demonstration."   Previous talks include Gibbs Sampling with Mathematica (Harry Bishop), Personal Knowledge Databases (Dan Martinez), Efficient Evaluation of a Double Integral With a Rapidly Oscillating Integrand (Mel Friedman), Calculating with Divergent Series (Mel Friedman), Animation of Simulation Results (Bruce Colletti), and Probability Distributions via Polynomial-like Expansion (Bruce Colletti).  Our forthcoming website will post agendas, minutes, talks, and code fragments.  

To inquire about attending, e-mail Dan Martinez
