Mathematica is supported on macOS 11 (Big Sur) on Intel, and they are testing the new Apple Silicon hardware, https://support.wolfram.com/51740.
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.
