1.  Prepared Talks

"Archiving Mathematica-generated Data", by Dan Martinez

ABSTRACT.  The title says it all.    

"Leibnitz's Rule Extended to Two Dimensions", by Mel Friedman

ABSTRACT.  The problem of differentiating a double integral with respect to
a parameter z when the limits of integration depend on z is discussed.

This problem is an extension of the well known Leibnitz's rule for
differentiating a single integral with respect to z when the limits of
integration depend on z. The solution of this problem is useful for
calculating the pdf of a random variable Z that depends in a known way on
two other random variables X and Y when the joint probability density
function of X and Y is known. Mathematica's word processing and symbolic
manipulation capability facilitated an analytical solution of the problem.

"Dealing with the aesthetics and verifiability of equations in manuscripts
submitted for publication", by David Vasholz

ABSTRACT.  The author has recently submitted a fairly extensive Mathematica
notebook that was accepted (after having been converted to a PDF file) as a
finished manuscript by a scientific journal (Theoretical and Computational
Fluid Dynamics). Various lessons learned from this process will be discussed
along with a short example manuscript that includes a "self aware" Appendix
that expedites the verification and examination of equations appearing in
the body of the manuscript.
