The Washington D.C. area Mathematica Special Interest Group will meet Friday, 7 September, 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. at the SAIC Enterprise Center building in Tysons Corner (see directions below). Early risers meet before 7:00 in the morning for admission at the front desk, then we have a Dutch treat breakfast downstairs. By about 7:30 we have moved to one of the projector rooms. Meetings consist of a prepared talk, informal discussion about Mathematica programming and applications, general questions, and new business. Mel Friedman will present "Technique for Making Publication Quality Graphs, Calculus Examples and the Use of Symbolize." The talk consists of four topics: - An Undergraduate Freshman discovers how to evaluate the limit (as x approaches 0) of sin(x) / x. - A technique for using Graphics to make quality graphs lickety-split. - A technique for using non-indexed subscripts. - New radius of curvature formulae. 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.' DIRECTIONS to 8301 Greensboro Drive, McLean VA (tall, boxy and white SAIC Enterprise Building at the corner of Westpark Drive and Greensboro Drive): From the Beltway, go northwest on Route 7 (Leesburg Pike) and proceed past Route 123 (Chain Bridge Road).
