About Mathematica Wolfram
Almost any workflow involves computing results, and that's whatMathematica does—from building a hedge-fund trading website or publishing interactive engineering textbooks, to developing embedded image-recognition algorithms or teaching calculus.
Mathematica is renowned as the world's ultimate application for computations. But it's much more—it's the only development platform fully integrating computation into complete workflows, moving you seamlessly from initial ideas all the way to deployed individual or enterprise solutions.
Mathematica 9 adds major new areas—further expanding Mathematica's unrivaled base of algorithmic, knowledge, and interface capabilities.
