Mathematica

Mathematica Logo

Mathematica is a software application that provides a mathematical computing environment for algorithmic computation, interactive manipulation, dynamic presentation, and data interaction. It is a single integrated, continually expanding system used in technical fields. 

This software is available for free to all faculty, staff and students at SJSU. Mathematica can get downloaded on both campus and personal machines.
