Mathematica

Advanced mathematics, visualization, and more.

**Mathematica** is the tool of choice across the technical world for everything from simple calculations to large-scale computations, programming, or presenting. Throughout industry, government, and education, two million people - from students to Nobel Laureates - use Mathematica to achieve more.

Mathematica seamlessly integrates a numeric and symbolic computational engine, graphics system, programming language, documentation system, and advanced connectivity to other applications. It is this range of capabilities - many world-leading in their own right - that makes Mathematica uniquely capable as a 'one-stop shop' for you or your organization's technical work.

The published price is that of a Standard license for Mathematica Desktop Industry only. Mathematica is available at various price-points; please see this page for further information.

Version: 11.0

CAUTION: This is for a DEMO LICENSE. It's not clear what the limitations of this license are, but the price of the real thing is way way higher! (My rating takes the pricing into account, greedy Wolf!)

Mar 27 2016

Version: 10.4

There seems to be some confusion as to the cost. The main MacUpdate.com page lists Mathematica as "Free". As of today. 27 March 2016, this page lists it as $2.00.

Oct 9 2015

Version: 10.1

After 27 years, Mathematica finally gets an undo function. Yay!

Apr 22 2015

Version: 10.1

There's no 10.1 version of the plugin, right? Although MacUpdate Desktop says so.

Apr 21 2015

Version: 10.1

Oddly today, the MU home page is listing this as 'free'. Then this page lists it at $2. NO.
There is a trial version. For education professionals it starts at ~$200. For non-professional individuals it is $250. For professionals it goes on up from there. You can choose to use it on the desktop, desktop with Internet, or Internet only. The Internet versions have periodic fees.

Apr 21 2015

Version: 10.1

A price of $ 2.00 would be really wonderful for this great mathematics package. I guess this is an error of MacUpdate, or?

Version: 8.0.1

Mathematica is a unique software in its capabilities ! I am a heavy user of Mathematica for a quarter of a century (since 1989), and hardly remember times that it failed me. I agree with Iliketrash that the interface is unique looking almost as it did 25 years ago, and the plots generators (commands) can be dramatically improved. I also agree that as a sophisticated mathematically-oriented word processor (or presentations maker) it is not the best. However, come on, this is a tools for doing mathematics and symbolic mathematics, and as such it is in a league of its own. Moreover, Mathematica help features and the connectivity of its interface with its manual is unbelievably smart and convenient. Even in this respect, till today I can't find any comparable softwares. My only wish is that I could write Mathematica commands in LaTeX (and then also see the output file in LaTeX-PDF), for me this will turn Mathematica into the ultimate software ... I take 0.5 star because I do think that the plots generator (command) should be improved. By the way, after purchasing/upgrading all versions of Mathematica since 1993, I finally received version 10.0 as a free upgrade ... thanks Wolfram :-)

Nov 28 2012

Version: 9.0

The Mathematica user interface was fun in 1988 but in 2012 is just a crusty relic. The "everything in one window" notebook metaphor is extraordinarily clumsy, requiring constant scrolling and collapsing-expanding of elements. Write code to create a graph, then scroll to see the actual graph, then scroll back to the code, etc. It has a built-in technical word processor with a lot of promise but much of that promise remains unrealized; it can't do multiple columns and it can't intelligently place figures etc. (just like Word etc.). It exports to LaTeX but with lots of editing required in the LaTeX file to clean up the mess. But yet, technically, Mathematica rocks.

Aug 9 2011

Version: 8.0.1

Leading-edge, world-class mathematical software, yet their rocket scientist programmers can't figure out how to implement the Undo function.

Jun 9 2011

Version: 8.0.1

Isn't this an old version. I use mathematica 8.0.1 for months already...

Nov 1 2008

Version: 6.0.3

I finally upgraded from v5.2 to v6.0.3. Indeed the new version is a major improvement. Particularly in the user interface, a vastly improved input/output formats, graphics and more (this is important when accounting for the fact that the set of improvements during the shift from v4.X to 5.X was essentially an empty set). Thus I find Mathematica 6.0.3 working smoothly. The only drawback is that under OS10.5.5, whenever Mathematica is running, my MacBook doesn't sleep and hence my battery is being drained. I hope that this will be fixed soon (before I have to purchase a new one).

Jun 11 2008

Version: 6.0.3

Too bad "leech" is already in use as an application name because with regard to upgrade fees, it would be an apt moniker for this app.

Jun 10 2008

Version: 6.0.3

Nice program but why do they continually charge upgrade fees for point updates/bug fixes?

Sep 28 2007

Version: 6.0

It must be stated that Wolfram has discontinued 64bit PPC support for Mathematica 6, it just runs in 32bit now. Mac PPC G5 is the only 64bit platform that Mathematica runs in a 32bit constrained mode. If you really need 64bit and have a PowerMac you should stay with the previous version 5 ... or look elsewhere.
