About Wolfram Mathematica

Wolfram Mathematica is a technical computing solution that provides businesses of all sizes with tools for image processing, data visualization and theoretic experiments. The notebook interface enables users to organize documents including texts, runnable codes, dynamic graphics and more.

Wolfram Mathematica allows businesses to visualize statistical, financial or geographic information in chart formats such as bar, pie, bubble, sector, histogram and more. It lets users conduct statistical analysis through data smoothing, hypothesis tests, cluster analysis, random sampling and other methodologies. Additionally, the image processing module enables users to create, import and manipulate image properties including brightness, color, alignment and...

It's the Macintosh of the interpreted software languages, it just works right out of the box!

Pros

The most critical feature of Mathematica (and Wolfram products in general) is that everything is seamlessly perfectly integrated. Everything is curated and maintained up to date. Competing platforms like Matlab sure offer a larger set of functionalities, but the integration of the many "packages" is too often very poor. In Mathematica, every package is fully integrated with the rest of the platform like no other software. Maybe you can say that Labview somehow reaches the same level of integration. Mathematica is a very flexible and multi-purpose software language that can be used for programming pretty much anything. New functionality like "Cloud-deploy" allow anybody to run algorithm made in Mathematica from anywhere in the world, from any device, with the only need of having an internet connection and a compatible browser.

Cons

Some secondary functionalities like the Presentation notebook are not so well developed, yet. That said, I doubt many will ever use it.

Engineering Grad Student Review of Mathematica

Overal really useful if you know how to use it and particularly strong at analytical calculus and symbolic equations. Otherwise the language is a little clunky. If more people used it, it would be more valuable.

Pros

Mathematica is really great at solving symbolic math equations. Unrivaled in my opinion. Analytical solving is a breeze with this and it is intuitive how it all appears, as if you wrote it on a sheet of paper. That is its best feature. Otherwise it has a lot of really cool math functionality for analzying data. I particularly have used it for signal processing.

Cons

Well it is like learning another programming language so you have to get over that barrier. It is hit or miss with other people who know how to read the software or even use it. The only reason I used it was because I found Wolfram Alpha online as an undergrad and when I became a grad student I found out the previous grad students used it. I'd say its programming language is a little clunky, compared to some competitors. And its not open software.

Reasons for Switching to Wolfram Mathematica

Mathematica was free at the University of Washington but MATLAB wasn't. Also MATLAB is clunky for solving symbolic math and I was excited to use Mathametica to do calculus.

Review for Wolfram Mathematica

It is very helpful in solving simple or complex differential equations that are commonly used in engineering problems.

Pros

+ The feature of "Cloud-deploy" allows user to reach their previous algorithm from any device that is connected to internet. + It shows the process of solution, step by step. And that enable students not only to solve the problem but also to learn how to solve it. + It can handle symbolic functions + It offers range varieties of mathematical functions and operators. + You can import or export data in different formats. + Sample solutions in help menu is really helpful and informative

Cons

- It is not good at dealing with vectors and matrices. - Plots could be better - It might be expensive for private use. - Instructions as to why the error occurs, generally is not helpful enough.

Good tool for students/professors at sciences and engineering

It was helping me out with my learning and check if I did well an exercise or if the result is similar, how it did get there.

Pros

Ït's offline. It tells the way to solve some exercises and share its result, save it as capture image and so. It is not heavy for our device. A bit quicker and easier to use than another calculator with its features like solving integrals and derivations. Not programming knowledge needed.

Cons

IYou must be cautious with what and how you write your equations because of syntax and priority solving by the mathematics and the program itself.

Reasons for Switching to Wolfram Mathematica

Because of usage; for these level of equations and exercises and time to operate. This one is more handleable.

Wolfram Mathematica is a powerful calculation and programming tool for engineer

In general, it is a piece of software that helps me a lot to develop quality notebooks for the implementation of calculations required in my area. In any case, it is a fundamental software for me to have good results.

Pros

The software has incredible calculation features, as well as functions that make it extremely easy to solve extremely complex equations. In addition, it has a website where you can ask questions, get support, exchange information with other users and access tutorials that make using tools much easier. The software can be used by civil engineers, mechanical engineers, mathematicians, physicists, among others in the exact area. The more practice and development with software, the easier it is to carry out your projects.

Cons

Some functions and tools are not so easy to use and require some study applied to them. It is also possible to get results from some equations and not be sure if it is right.
