Computational Research and Studies with Mathematica: Teaching and Research using the Wolfram Language

Friday, January 14, 2022 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Virtual Event

In this session Prof Abbot will present a range of examples to demonstrate why the Wolfram Language is an unparalleled teaching and research tool. Topics to be covered: (1) Using the simple and powerful free-form input functionality; (2) Discussing the consistent syntax and excellent interactive documentation; (3) Examples of high-level numerics, symbolics, visualization, and graphics; (4) Demonstrating the easy access to a wide range of curated data sources and code repositories; (5) Showing how to write papers and theses as Notebooks; and, finally, (6) Setting and assessing open-ended research-style exam questions.
