Wolfram Research Provides Mathematica Free to Everyone in
China for 60 Days
April 24, 2006--Wolfram Research announced today a bold new initiative
to provide free copies of its world-renowned Mathematica
software across China this summer. Starting April 26,
anyone in China can download a free 60-day save-enabled copy of the
latest Mathematica version for use on their personal or work
computers. Unlike traditional trials, these downloads feature the
full capabilities of Mathematica Professional, so users can
experience Mathematica exactly as it is used by millions around
the world in science and technology.
Already the technical software of choice for many major institutions
throughout China, Mathematica has seen ever-increasing interest
from individuals wanting to learn more about the product and how to
apply it to their fields. This new trial program, together with the
Wolfram Research Tour of
China, will bring Mathematica to the rapidly growing
community of students, professionals, and others who need it for a
wide variety of technical applications.
In addition to the software, Wolfram Research is providing support
with a free downloadable Mathematica tutorial. The tutorial
gets users up to speed in just 10 minutes with a step-by-step
introduction to the basics of numerical and symbolic computation,
graphics, and programming in Mathematica.
"We want people in China to see for themselves exactly how
powerful Mathematica is and learn how to use it along the way,"
said Xiang Wang, China business development associate at Wolfram
Research. "This is more than just a trial version. It's an opportunity for
everyone in China to incorporate Mathematica into their
workflow, tackle their toughest long- and short-term projects, and
explore the latest advances in technical computing--all for free."
More information is available on the Chinese Mathematica product pages.
