Dear Mathematica user

Mathematica is an extremely powerful tool for describing your World 
mathematically - Mathematica World will help you utilise this immense power.

The Mathematica World electronic magazine (on disk, executable/interactive) aims
to provide you with the support you need to get the most from Mathematica.  
Tutorials on aspects of the front-end, kernel, and package functionality guide 
you interactively through functions that receive only a brief description in 
documentation coming with Mathematica.  Various notebooks illustrate how you can
use Mathematica in a broad range of situations.  Announcements of new packages, 
and included packages extend the functionality of Mathematica in specific areas.
The News section includes our solutions to problems that have been posed over 
the previous month through Internet news and mail groups.  

December.  XTFP Graphics Language - Jonathan Burns - draw articulated figures, 
and recursively generated structures, the Animation Album includes a bicycle, 
butterfly, helicopter, tile pattern, and an unfolding dodecahedron.  Tutorials -
Using Remote Kernels, Getting Functional, InterCall, MathLink Intro.  Notebooks 
- XTFP, Interacting With Excel, Decompile, Optimize, OzMATH Corner, Positioning 
Graphics3D.  Packages - XTFP, Decompile, Optimize.

November.  Topological Deformation - Terry Robb - continuously deform two 
connected tori into two linked tori, also included in the Animation Album is a 
simulation of Schrodinger's equation, and the comparison of a theoretical photo 
and Mathematica model of flow around a cylinder.  Tutorials - Tour of the Graph 
Menu, Graphics Programming, M Programming, Understanding Mathematica.  Notebooks
- Explore, Goodbye Spreadsheets, Interest on Interest, Live Multiple Display, 
OzMATH Corner, Re-conceptualising Mathematics Education, Two Problems.

You will find over the years that Mathematica will enhance the way you approach 
quantitative problems.  If Mathematica World can help you along this path then 
we will have achieved what we have set out to do.

Seasons Greetings
