1.  Prepared Talks

"Using Datatypes in Mathematica and Responsive Graphic Labels", by Harry

ABSTRACT.  Although Mathematica doesn't use OOP, datatypes can associate
data elements with functions by overloading a head form.  Labels on graphics
are easy to put on a static image; however changing the image with
Manipulate can result in rearranging positions that require labeling and
background elements to reposition dynamically.


"Data Set Sensitivity Analysis Using Graphics", by Dan Martinez

ABSTRACT.  Dan will show how the EllipsoidQuantile wrapper can be combined
with ordinary plotting to depict systematic relationships in data sets.

"Mathematica 8.0 and Group Theory," by Bruce Colletti

ABSTRACT.  (This talk had been scheduled for December 2010)  We'll quickly
survey Mathematica's group theory capabilities.

Applications of Mathematica to some areas of science
