Mathematica SIG (http://web.me.com/hrbishop.pmsi) MEETING 17 June 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 "On the translation of a book written in LaTeX into a Mathematica notebook", by Dave Vasholz ABSTRACT. In this talk I start with a book written by a colleague and display it as a pdf file. I then examine the underlying LaTeX file and show how one might perform a translation into a Mathematica notebook. One of the by-products of this effort is an interesting little program that can map sequences of integers into Mathematica notebooks. "Using Mathematica in the Curation of String Lists", by Dan Martinez ABSTRACT. In this presentation, Dan will illustrate how Mathematica's string search faculties can be used to isolate variants of strings in lists for the purpose of making them uniform. The technique is ideal for consolidating names of individuals that contain spelling errors, the use of nicknames or the use of initialisms. 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.
