Mathematica SIG (Northern Virginia and Washington DC)
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 (dmartinez at sprintmail.com) or Bruce Colletti (bcolletti at compuserve.com). In your e-mail subject line, please include 'Mathematica SIG.'
