Mathematica (Wolfram)

Mathematica is supported on macOS 11 (Big Sur) on Intel, and they are testing the new Apple Silicon hardware

Even though states that people can get instant access to Mathematica, we distribute this software for a cost.  More information and order links are provided below.

Mathematica is a computational software program based on symbolic mathematics that is used in scientific, engineering, mathematical, and computing fields. 

  • Mathematica includes collections of curated data provided for use in computations.
  • It is integrated with Wolfram Alpha, an online service which provides additional data, some of which is kept updated in real time.
  • Some of the data sets include astronomical, chemical, geopolitical, language, biomedical, and weather data.
