The Mathematica Journal to be Published by Academic Press

Champaign, Illinois-The Mathematica Journal has been acquired by the
prestigious Academic Press, according to Wolfram Research, Inc., makers of
Mathematica. Previously published by Miller Freeman, Inc., The Mathematica
Journal, published quarterly, is the foremost source of information about

Mathematica is the premier technical computing system available, and the
diverse content of The Mathematica Journal reflects the wide variety of
users Mathematica has attracted: more than a million scientists,
researchers, educators, engineers, students, and others worldwide. In
each issue of the Journal, expert Mathematica users from industry and
academia provide articles describing Mathematica applications in such areas
as computer-aided tomography (the medical "CAT scan") and the analysis of
surface roughness during metal manufacturing. A four-color Graphics Gallery
displays striking imagery produced in Mathematica, often blurring the
distinction between mathematics and art. Distinguished scientists and
researchers write about what they've found with the help of Mathematica.

Academic Press is one of the largest commercial publishers in the United
States for scientific information, and is known throughout the
international scientific community.  Established as a publishing company in
the United States in 1942, Academic Press became a division of
Harcourt Brace & Company in 1969.

According to John Bonadies, Director of Marketing at Wolfram Research, the
company is confident that Academic Press will serve the Mathematica
community well.  "Academic Press has shown a serious commitment to
Mathematica in its previous publications, in general, and we've always
regarded The Mathematica Journal as an important complement to Wolfram's
own channels of communication with Mathematica users. We think they will
uphold the quality that people have come to expect from the Mathematica
name, and we look forward to further growth of The Mathematica Journal 
under the auspices of the Academic Press."  (Current subscriptions will 
be transferred to Academic Press.)

'Wolfram Research is the world's leading developer of technical computing
software.' The company was founded by Stephen Wolfram in 1987 and released
the first version of its flagship product Mathematica on June 23, 1988.
Since that time, the company has grown rapidly and has released a library
of related application packages in fields such as control systems and
financial analysis. Mathematica 3.0 was released in the fall of 1996.
Wolfram Research, Inc. is headquartered in Champaign, Illinois.
