Mathematica SIG (http://web.me.com/hrbishop.pmsi) MEETING 21 January 2011, 7:30 am Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) 8301 Greensboro Drive McLean VA Southern Corner of Westpark Drive and Greensboro Drive Agenda 1. Prepared Talks "Using Datatypes in Mathematica and Responsive Graphic Labels", by Harry Bishop 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. 2. Mathematica Gems and Discoveries Sharing of Mathematica programming oddities Applications of Mathematica to some areas of science Something recently read and worth sharing 3. Mathematica Questions, Possible Approaches and Discussion 4.
