Mathematica Home Edition: Discover, Create, and Explore
February 5, 2009--Wolfram Research today announced the availability of
Mathematica Home Edition, a release that for the first time lets
people explore their personal interests using all the power of Mathematica at a fraction of the
"Over the last two years, as we've delivered powerful new capabilities and
integrated vast banks of curated data, we've realized that
Mathematica is not just the perfect tool for those on the
frontiers of research, in the top echelons of academia, and throughout
mainstream engineering, finance, and science," said Peter Overmann,
Director of Software Technology at Wolfram Research.
"Mathematica is the perfect tool for a broader group--from
amateur scientists, to parents interested in introducing their children to
concepts in math, science, finance, and other areas, to anyone who wants
to make fully interactive models and simulations, analyze real-time data
on stocks, weather, or stars, transform and enhance images, or explore
infinitely more activities."
Mathematica Home Edition contains the full functionality of the
recently released Mathematica 7, which integrates powerful
technologies including image processing, parallel computation, and rich
data on astronomy, geography, life sciences, and more. Mathematica
Home Edition also includes Mathematica's innovative user
interfaces that make it possible for new users to achieve high-impact
results, like dynamic applications, instantly.
"Since the beginning, we've maintained a deep commitment to technological
awareness and education, sponsoring the largest free network of web
resources, including MathWorld and the Wolfram Demonstrations Project,"
said Eric Weisstein, Senior Researcher at Wolfram Research. "Now, in a
time when more people are thinking more and more about science and
technology, we can put extraordinary power into their hands.
Mathematica Home Edition has that power--letting more people
explore their world like never before."
Wolfram Research makes it easy for users to see Mathematica Home
Edition in action and get started with it. Over 4,500 dynamic
examples of concepts in life sciences, physical sciences, engineering,
creative arts, and many other areas have been published as part of the
Wolfram Demonstrations Project. They are available for free.
In addition, over 100,000 examples of Mathematica functions and
capabilities are provided in the Wolfram Mathematica
