The Washington D.C. area Mathematica Special Interest Group will meet Friday, 25 April, 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 classrooms.  Meetings consist of prepared talks, informal discussion about Mathematica programming and applications, general questions, and new business. 
Here are the prepared talks:

Speaker #1.  Mel Friedman will discuss five mini-topics:

a.  Tradeoffs Between Calculating With Real and Exact Numbers

b.  Analytical Convolution Integral, Analytical Fourier Transform and Inverse Fourier Transform

c.  Fourier and Inverse Fourier Transforms With Delta Functions

d.  Numerical Integration of a Discretely Sampled Function

e.  Least Squares Fit of Discretely Sampled Function

Speaker #2.  Harry Bishop will discuss our evolving MathSIG group site (and what else we might do with it) and the present static (DC-SIG) site.

Speaker #3.  Dan Martinez may present another (as he calls it) "harangue" about Manipulate.  If that's haranguing, then we need more of it!  

To inquire about attending, e-mail Dan Martinez (dmartinez at or Bruce Colletti (bcolletti at  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).  Turn right onto Westpark Drive (Gosnell Road in the other direction).  Turn right  at the next light onto Greensboro Drive and then right into the parking lot. Visitor's Parking is adjacent to Westpark Drive.   

A SIG representative will meet you in the lobby. 

Please arrive no later than ten minutes to seven if you wish to join us for breakfast, and no later than twenty after seven to attend the meeting only.  The desk officer will ask for a driver's license before issuing a visitor's badge.
