Woven throughout this talk we will highlight new capabilities in Mathematica 8.0 which include:
- Free form linguistic input and integration with Wolfram Alpha
- Nearly 100 new statistical distributions and new statistical visualizations
- CUDA and OpenCL support for GPU computing
- Automatic C code generation and linking
- New image processing functions
- New import and export formats
- Integrated control systems
- Wavelets analysis
- Computation & Visualization
In addition, the talk will cover:
- Example-driven view of key computational features: symbolic
processing, solving, import/export, analysis, filtering and plotting
data, modeling, simulation, dynamic computations; applied examples
chosen from image processing, bio-informatics, particle physics,
geodesy, astronomical science, and more.
Mathematica as a development environment; programming paradigms (example-driven), parallel computation; development tools.
- Connection Technologies
Brief overview of connecting to databases, Java, .Net, legacy C/Fortran, etc.
Mathematica as a technical document environment; slideshows, saving to TeX/PDF/HTML etc.
