## Over Wolfram Mathematica

Technisch computersysteem dat tools biedt voor beeldverwerking, geometrie, visualisatie, machine learning, datamining en meer.

Its great for visualizing the data and creating/viewing both 2D and 3D graphs. Ideal for technical computing.

While Mathematica doesn't have the worst error checking I've seen in some programming languages, it lacks on-the-fly error checking.

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

Pluspunten:

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.

Minpunten:

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

Opmerkingen: 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.

Pluspunten:

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.

Minpunten:

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.

### Helpful software for solving mathematical problems

Pluspunten:

It is very helpful program to solve hard mathematical problems with nice feature of graph rendering. Only with few skills of programming is user capable to reach results.

Minpunten:

I my opinion annual price is high for personal use. Also using different expressions for mathematical formulas could be from beginning quite confusing. It take some time to learn this properly.

### Wolfram solving your calculus headaches!

Opmerkingen: I used Wolfram frequently as a student in calculus courses. It has helped me complete homework assignments.

Pluspunten:

The best features of Wolfram Alpha at the free level are the simple search bar for calculation. It was extremely useful in calculus 3 courses, mainly because it presents integrals and derivatives of equations. My favorite aspects is that it provides graphical representations of the equations, which is a visual learning tool.

Minpunten:

I have tried out using Wolfram for non-mathematic topics, including historical figures. The presentation style of these, including showing the "queries", is not preferable to a simple web engine search about the person you are looking for.

### Wolfarm Mathematica.

Opmerkingen: I like wolfarm mathematica for its powerful exceutional engine that makes it able to simulate or visualize data very well.

Pluspunten:

Mathematica has a great graphics user interface, and it does a fantastic job. It also has a lot of other advantages. It has a huge array of codes and library, though complex but powerful. Mathematica is without a doubt one of the most powerful programmes we use and has a very large and active online society to help in problems.

Minpunten:

What I find difficult about it is its learning curve, as Wolfram is a large language that can take some time to understand and use comfortably. Apart from that, I have no complaints about Wolfram Mathematica because it meets all of my requirements.

##### Fabian

### Good tool for students/professors at sciences and engineering

Opmerkingen: 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.

Pluspunten:

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.

Minpunten:

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.

##### Harald

### What would we do without it?

Opmerkingen: Mathematica is used as a "canned data" version to process RADAR data. Of course it cannot do real time but that is not the requirement. With Mathematica we have a tool to see almost instantaneously if any new idea has a perspective to work or not. I am personally using Mathematica since 1990 using the "good old" Version 1.2 on a MacIntosh...

Pluspunten:

It is a really sturdy workhorse for any purposes. We do lots of RADAR data evaluations, FEM simulations, recently also NN modelling. The general strategy is to implement an algorithm in Mathematica and use this as a benchmark when the same algorithm will be transferred to c++. In contrast to other commercial available packages the output of integral transforms can be adapted to the culture (e.g. signal processing versus mathematical parameter sets for Fourier transform) and we get exactly the envisaged behavior. Generally, one can get algorithmic packages to run in one working day that take a man month to be implemented in c++. In addition, we have own packages to generate Gantt charts, project plans, 3D printer code, PCB circuit layouts.

Minpunten:

Documentation is a bit thin, especially newly added functions tend to be poorly described. Neural Networks work fine but the description of the details is dismal! Please improve with some example networks. It took us eternities to grasp the stuff. Plotting even moderately complex 3D Regions (implicit or discretized) is very unstable and it is really a nuisance. It mostly ends with error messages and a complete breakdown of the kernel...

### Differential geometry problems visualisation

Opmerkingen: The latest version is packed with advanced algorithms in geometring computing and is develope geometric computation. Wolfram Mathematica version13 is a package of symbolic mathematics wich integretes cartesian geometry and euclidean geometry, parametric geometry and differential geometry. The new features emphasize shapes and performance and let me to easily model geometric regions and analyze them. For the first time I can to fully integrate generation, analysis, and rendering of geometrical structures. The same regions can also be used as specifications for many high-level solvers, including algebraic and partial differential equation solving. The possibilities of Mathematica are endless.

Pluspunten:

I became familiar with the "Mathematica" calculation tool, used for numerical and symbolic computation and for 2D and 3D graphics. I learned to apply it to geometry, to differential calculus and to the management of experimental data in physics Only with intensive use of Wolfram Mathematica , I've see Einstein's theory of relativity in real life and the Riemann Tensor and the Curvature of Ricci , after designed ellipses, torus, hyperboloids and Calabi- Yau spaces. Wolfram Mathematica it's a special tool for the visualization of differential geometry.

Minpunten:

1.By default, autosave to a Mathematica notebook is missing and the notebook can disappear along with several hours of work, when I forget to manually save. 2. It happened to me. I have imported a dxf file generated in AutoCAD into Mathematica and processed it, when I exported it, the file doesn't load successfully in AutoCAD.

### The best multi-purpose mathematical solver

Opmerkingen: Well designed, insanely well integrated and functional. The most powerful mathematical solver software I have ever used.

Pluspunten:

The sheer versatility of the product. It has so much depth and can be used to program and develop mathematical models with ease like no other product I have used before. To be able to call on information from the internet within your code or to add to your solution is mind-blowing. The well designed interface allows any user to easily keep track of their work and report the required results

Minpunten:

The only con I can say for Wolfram is that from time to time especially with too many variables and complex modelling the software would take some time to calculate and output. But the time is nothing compared to other platforms attempting to do the same projects.

##### Geverifieerde reviewer

### Beginner friendly alternative to coding

Pluspunten:

Extremely beginner friendly software allowing users to solve all kinds of math problems without the need of knowing how to programming. All the tools are intuitive and the solution is presented in a very clear amd comprehensive manner in comparison with a programming script.

Minpunten:

There is difficulty in debugging because despite the ease of use, this type of writing a problem makes the error finding more challenging.

##### Nuwan Chaminda

### Very helpful for theorists in their research fields

Opmerkingen: As I am doing my research in the field of Quantum electron transportation calculations, it's very easy to do all my calculations and most important thing is that it helps us a lot to analyze all my results well. As we solve the matrices which are having a higher degree, it doesn't matter since we have Mathematica. It simplifies everything, all electron transportation calculation we have. because other methods, such as the Green Function method and Scattering methods are much more complex!

Pluspunten:

It's easy to use as it provides more helpful manuals in the Wolfram site. If you can not understand some code, then you may click on 'help' and very easily you can find the meaning of the respective code. Plus, there are many more functions available to analyze, to do much harder calculations, to draw graphs, etc. It helps a lot in our Quantum Mechanics projects as once we analyzed the Icing Model using Mathematica.

Minpunten:

To be honest, I like almost everything in Wolfram Mathematica. The appearance of the software is great, and the work is very good and there are many more advantages of Mathematica. However, to improve, I think it's better to have some way to simply some of the codes in Mathematica. Anyway, as the users, that's also not a problem. Mathematica, simply one of the most powerful software we are using.

### Poor Customer Service

Opmerkingen: I had to call quite a few times before getting an answer which at the end turned out to be complete nonsense. I 've just acquired a license for my own use and install it on a MAC. However, since the OS Catalina update, my license stopped working and required an update from Mathematica "32-bit app compatibility with macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 and later". I contacted Wolframe thinking that they would be understanding in providing a free upgrade. "No way" was their answer.

Pluspunten:

Great software which has been very useful to me for more than 12 years now.

Minpunten:

I was really surprised by their poor customer support.

##### Geverifieerde reviewer

### A useful mathematical tool

Opmerkingen: I have been using Mathematica for the last 4 years both for my research and clas work. It hase been very useful to me, and my experience with Mathematica has been exceptional.

Pluspunten:

It has a wide range of mathematical feature ranging from linear algebra to complex differential calculus. This platform is very easy to use as it is pretty intuitive.

Minpunten:

One of the biggest shortcomings of this platform is its failure to identify or point out the error in the code/programming. The cost can be a barrier too.

##### Rodrigo

### The best software for symbolic mathematics

Opmerkingen: I have solve a wide variety of problems, from simple calculations to very complicated symbolic analyses. In the faculty is normally favoured for more abstract analyses which don't necessarily involve finite precision arithmetic, but it can obviously be used for that as well.

Pluspunten:

This software is extremely well suited for symbolic mathematics. Where MATLAB excels in numerical handling, Mathematica excels in symbolic mathematics. I have used this software for stochastic analysis, namely Markov Chain analysis. It is very useful as well for topology and graph theory and not only helps by solving complex systems but makes beautiful graphs needed in topological analysis. I have also used it in optimization contexts, to draw the feasible regions of complex functions. It is simply an extremely robust and versatile piece of mathematical software.

Minpunten:

At the beginning is not very easy to use because small errors in syntax will render a big function useless; hopefully for simple things it is well integrated with Wolfram Alpha, which can interpret more natural expression the transported to Mathematica.

##### Tony

### Wolfram Mathematica

Opmerkingen: Very good software.

Pluspunten:

It's fast and easy to create math equations and solve them. I have used this software for calculus when I was in college and it was very useful.

Minpunten:

None. Very good software.

##### Kathryn

### Online College Instructor Uses Mathematica

Opmerkingen: I personally really like using Mathematica. I like the 3D images that help me show such objects such as 'donuts' in Calculus.

Pluspunten:

As an online college math instructor, I like to use Mathematica to check the harder upper division problems. I hate to get to the answer in class, and it is not the answer - and students are terrible at stopping instructors when they see a small mistake! I like to write out all of my notes and Mathematica is awesome for helping me make it perfect!

Minpunten:

One difficulty is for students that have not programmed before or don't think in symbol text needed to 'program' for answers.

##### Geverifieerde reviewer

### Mathematica Value for money

Opmerkingen: It was easy and time-saving to solve math-related problems. I had really fun while visualizing the data in 3D.

Pluspunten:

Symbolic functions can be treated and It provides numerous mathematical functions and operators. Allow users to access the related algorithms and demonstrates its process which helps students to learn how to solve the problem. It has user-friendly graphic visualization of data on 3D view which helps to understand the concept easily.

Minpunten:

You would not understand the language needed to input the functions and calculations if you do not understand computer programming. It was impossible to correct if there was an error trying to graph functions, and it ended up starting over multiple times. It performs poorly when dealing with vectors and matrics. It is only affordable for the community or office, expensive for personal use.

##### Jason

### Very Effective Math Tool

Pluspunten:

There are so many things that you can do with Mathematica because of the Wolfram foundation. It's completely free-form, so you can use it in whatever way you like and achieve results: from contour plots to simple arithmetic and anything more simple or more complex. There are built-in functions to help you if you make a mistake in your code or if you need help figuring out what to do to achieve your goal.

Minpunten:

The tough part is learning all the aspects of the software. The way you have to write your functions and expressions are slightly unconventional to regular maths. And there's no way to know you did something wrong until you've messed up and it prompts you on how to fix it. Sometimes having too many functions is detrimental if there isn't enough support to help the users learn how to start.

##### Geverifieerde reviewer

### My favorite calculation software behind excel

Pluspunten:

For complicated algorithms or system design - Mathematica is, hands down, my favorite calculation software. You can make your calculations very presentable and can customize the look of your notebook as much as you want.

Minpunten:

With all of the wonderful things about Mathematica - it has a fairly significant learning curve. There are lots of quick keys that make the software faster, but without it, the time to create calculations can be really slow. It takes a good amount of time to really understand the software.

##### Francisco

### A powerful tool for science students

Opmerkingen: It’s the best mathematical software I’ve ever used

Pluspunten:

It’s UI is one of the most easy to use, even if you don’t understand much of programming

Minpunten:

Like many other software of this type it requires for you to mess up before you actually achieve what you want

##### Alberto

### Mathematica is powerful, but you REALLY need to know how to use it to get great value from it.

Pluspunten:

The capabilities and functionalities embedded in Mathematica are almost unbounded. You can create very complex models in every branch of mathematics and statistics with this software and, in addition, Mathematica can display the final results using graphics that can be entirely customized to suit your needs--from very simple plots to very sophisticated graphical animations.

Minpunten:

The amount of effort needed to use Mathematica in all its glory is long and steep. Unfortunately, the logic and naming conventions that make Mathematica a powerful programming language are not intuitive--there are too many rules and obscure naming conventions that are not typically used in other languages. Error messages are not very helpful for new users, and frustration can quickly set in.

##### Pallavi

### Ideal software for technical computing!

Opmerkingen: I had a great experience using the Wolfram Mathematica. It's an ideal software for technical computing.

Pluspunten:

I like Wolfram Mathematica software because of its high speed mathematical calculation, instantaneous graph illustration, and 3D image view capabilities.

Minpunten:

There is a learning curve to write or enter equations in Mathematica. It's easy to make mistakes.

##### Geverifieerde reviewer

### Good for Math or Engineering Students

Opmerkingen: Except for the price, I really enjoy Mathematica, it really helps me do math better.

Pluspunten:

Mathematica supports a lot of useful functions for serious math people. It is also a useful tool in a classroom setting.

Minpunten:

I got it for free from the university. But after I graduated, my license expired. I was considering buying it but it was just way too expensive.

##### Simol

### Definitely one of the cooler intro to visualization

Opmerkingen: Pretty much visualizing the boundaries and thresholds of certain spatial naps

Pluspunten:

A stepstone to nathematical computing, it allows for variable visualization and variable plots at any sort of selfmade or exported query you may have

Minpunten:

A lot of different functions and multiple ways of plotting could be difficult to understand for the first time user

##### Geverifieerde reviewer

### Top mathematics tool for in need of high end results

Opmerkingen: super functions, algorithms, Wolfram Mathematica is very broad

Pluspunten:

I like that their software system usability options are super wide, from algorithms, super functions to live data.

Minpunten:

Their pricing option could be better - for students it is quite expensive so they should reduce price from there.
