  Mathematica - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mathematica is a widely-used computer algebra system originally conceived by Stephen Wolfram, developed by a team of mathematicians and programmers that he assembled and led, and sold by his company Wolfram Research.
Mathematica is also a powerful programming language emulating multiple paradigms on top of term-rewriting.
The Mathematica programming language is based on term-rewriting and supports both functional and procedural programming (though functional code is much more efficient in general).

 About Mathematica
Mathematica is used today throughout the sciences--physical, biological, social, and other--and counts many of the world's foremost scientists among its enthusiastic supporters.
Mathematica has also emerged as an important tool in computer science and software development: its language component is widely used as a research, prototyping, and interface environment.
Mathematica has become a standard in a great many organizations, and it is used today in all of the Fortune 50 companies, all of the 15 major departments of the U.S. government, and all of the world's 50 largest universities.

 Principia Mathematica - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Principia Mathematica is a three-volume work on the foundations of mathematics, written by Alfred North Whitehead and Bertrand Russell and published in 1910–1913.
It is an attempt to derive all mathematical truths from a well-defined set of axioms and inference rules in symbolic logic.
However, the statement "We do not allow self-referential statements in Principia Mathematica" is a seeming violation of the rule against self-referential statements, an apparent contradiction at the heart of the philosophy, although it may be interpreted as meaning that none of the following statements in the formal system itself would be self-referential.

Mathematica was first released in 1988, and in the years since that time it has become the tool of choice for well over a million scientists, engineers, financial analysts, students, and others.
Mathematica has been used to design airplanes, to manage fisheries, to analyze stock markets, to discover important new science and mathematics, to solve innumerable homework exercises--and also, almost from the beginning, to create art.

 Software Review - Mathematica 5
Mathematica from Wolfram Research is well known as a "mathematical system" for mathematicians, but it is perhaps not as well known for its wealth of features for OR professionals.
Mathematica 5 can read an MPS file and solve the corresponding LP model with the "default" option (Mathematica chooses the appropriate method based on the size and precision of the problem), or the user can set simplex or interior point to be used by default if desired.
Mathematica 5 does not have integer programming, but you could write your own branch-and-bound code within Mathematica or, perhaps less efficiently, in C++ or Java, and use the Mathematica 5 LP solvers for the LP part via Mathlink that is a part of Mathematica 5.

 Exploratorium Exhibition: Mathematica
Mathematica: A World of Numbers and Beyond is a collection of all that is wild and wonderful in mathematics, from age-old paradoxes like the Möbius strip to the more modern subfield of topology.
For example, many embittered students have suffered through grading on a bell curve, a mystical statistical entity that, when applied to the classroom setting, decrees that there will be mainly C students, fewer B and D students, and just a sprinkling of A and F students.
In Mathematica, you can witness spontaneous formations of an in-the-flesh bell curve, as 30,000 plastic balls fall through a maze of 200 pegs into a series of slots, invariably forming the same pattern.

 Principia Mathematica
Principia Mathematica, the landmark work written by Alfred North Whitehead and Bertrand Russell, and published in three volumes, in 1910, 1912 and 1913.
Written as a defense of logicism (i.e., the view that mathematics is in some significant sense reducible to logic) the book was instrumental in developing and popularizing modern mathematical logic.
Third, Principia Mathematica reaffirmed clear and interesting connections between logicism and two main branches of traditional philosophy, namely metaphysics and epistemology, thus initiating new and interesting work in both these and other areas.

Security considerations : Mathematica notebooks can contain "initialization cells", which are intended by the notebook's author to be evaluated by a Mathematica kernel when the notebook is opened.
Since Mathematica can run external programs on some computers, and can effect the filesystems on all computers, users of the Mathematica front end are strongly encouraged to disable the option to automatically evaluate initialization cells when receiving potentially unsafe Mathematica notebooks.
Mathematica version 2 notebooks are created in two "portions": the text portion which contains all of the notebook's necessary information, and the binary portion which facilitates fast loading of the notebook.

In version 5 and earlier Mathematica uses two random number generators, a Subtract With Borrow algorithm and the famous Wolfram Cellular Automaton algorithm (rule 30).The SWB algorithm has rather short lags (by modern standards) and has been known to cause problems.
This "package" implements the workaround, which consists in replacing all calls to the SWB generator by calls to the CA generator.It is based on the workaround of Daniel Lichtblau with improvments due to Ray Koopman and Bobby Treat that ought to make it faster.
