What's New in Mathematica 9

Curious about Mathematica 9? See it live during this free seminar. Our experts will introduce you to new features in usability, computation, data manipulation, and visualization. With a whole array of new ideas and application areas, Mathematica 9 will equip you with the tools you need, whatever your field, background or experience, to solve an ever-larger variety of problems.

This free evening seminar will comprise:

  • Presentation on Mathematica 9 (please read more below and in the schedule of the event)
  • Q&A and networking opportunity

Who should attend:

  • Existing users of Mathematica who want to see the latest features and additions
  • Researchers and educators who want to see the possibilities of Mathematica as a strategic platform in higher education
  • Those with an interest in finance, engineering, data science, software engineering, and more
  • Technology strategists wanting to know whatís possible now in computation
  • Beginners wanting to get up to speed with Wolfram technologies
  • Nonusers wanting to find the best technology for their next project


  • New Software Development
    Mathematica 9 provides an extended range of development opportunities, with new asynchronous client-side web access allowing AJAX-style programming, the ability to interact directly with web APIs, support for hierarchical datasets through the HDF5 file format, and extensive support for business dates and calendar-based computation.
  • Predictive Interface and Units
    Get a look at the new interface paradigm and systemwide units support, the next-computation Suggestions Bar, the context-sensitive Input Assistant, and units features, from unit conversion to dimensional analysis.
  • Social Networks and Data Science
    Learn about Mathematica 9's new social network analysis capabilities with built-in access to social media data, plus other graph and network enhancements. Mathematica 9 introduces new computational features in data science built from new, flexible data structures allowing for random simulations—including both survival and reliability analyses.
  • Data Manipulation and Visualization
    Introducing new features for image and signal processing, with the ability to interact with and analyze volumetric data. Overhauled interactive gauges and systemwide legends support radically improve the ability to create easy-to-digest interactive elements and visualization.
  • R Integration
    With Mathematica 9 you are now able to integrate the open-source statistical environment R directly into your Mathematica workflow. RLink allows R code to be written, evaluated, and output from within Mathematica notebooks—providing the powerful visualization and interactive capabilities of Mathematica to all R users.

...and much more.
