But is it worth to use Mathematica if I have to make serious scientific calculations? Do I believe that it is better immediately to depart with the c++ and to use the numerous numerical and symbolic libraries (what besides are free)? Surely to the beginning it is had to study more but then they are not had to make the compromises (matlink to recall external forms to increase speed execution, sparsearray for example have grow limitation to <= 2^31 also on version to 64 bit, etc etc). And then I believe that for an advanced use of mathematica a peer effort is had to do however? Certainly that if the wolfram succeeded in building a compiler for mathematica... then the heaven would be to course of hand!!! excuse me for my bad English hi and thanks cristian
