12.0.0
19 April 2019

Advanced mathematics, visualization, and more.

Overview

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.

  • Use Around to describe uncertainty in measured values, with built-in support in visualization functions
  • Create, analyze and modify chemical species using the Molecule function, and visualize structures in two and three dimensions with MoleculePlot and MoleculePlot3D
  • Represent geodetic vectors with GeoVector, and visualize geodetic vector fields using GeoVectorPlot and GeoStreamPlot
  • Generate randomly distributed geo positions in any region using RandomGeoPosition, and analyze distance, area and angular distortion of geo projections using GeoGridUnitDistance, GeoGridUnitArea and GeoGridDirectionDifference
  • Updated default appearance for GraphPlot visualizations, as well as new plot themes and updated properties
  • Color-processing functions such as FindMatchingColor, ImageRecolor and ColorDetect, all powered by the new ColorsNear wrapper to represent a color neighborhood
  • High-level recognition functions such as ImageCases, FacialFeatures, AudioIdentify and SpeechRecognize, and performance enhancements to FindFaces, FeatureSpacePlot, AudioMFCC, etc.
  • Performance improvements in audio analysis functions such as AudioIntervals and windowing functions such as HannWindow, and a new AudioAnnotate framework for annotating audio objects
  • Multi-language support for SpeechSynthesize, as well as improved discovery and searching of available voices through VoiceStyleData
  • ShortTimeFourier for computing and storing properties of short-time Fourier transforms, and InverseSpectrogram for approximating a signal from a magnitude spectrogram
  • The neural network framework has been enhanced with additional pre-trained models, new layers, new encoders and decoders, multi-GPU support and automatic early stopping of training to prevent overfitting
  • ClassifierMeasurements can now handle uncertainties and multi-class averaging, and the "NeuralNetwork" method for Classify has been vastly improved using a self-normalizing net
  • Learn a generalized probability distribution from arbitrary data using LearnDistribution, replace missing values in data by generated values using SynthesizeMissingValues and find anomalous examples in data using FindAnomalies
  • Interact with relational databases symbolically using RelationalDatabase, integrating out-of-core and in-memory techniques to access terabyte-scale data and automatically generating SQL code for popular databases
  • Query remote or in-memory RDF graph databases using SPARQL queries, and import/export RDF data from a variety of RDF formats
  • Support for "on-the-fly" properties, filtering and sorting, aggregation, combining types and sampling of classes in the entity framework
  • Expanded and enhanced data for built-in entities across all domains, including geographic, cultural and historic, life science and medical, financial, astronomical, earth science, transportation, engineering, linguistic and mathematical
  • Efficient partial import and other improvements in scientific formats such as "FITS" and "HDF5", as well as tabular formats such as "CSV" and "XLS"
  • NumericArray for creating the most compact representation of a numeric array
  • Pass arguments to functions in any order or bracket structure with Curry, or map vector functions onto sublists of elements with SubsetMap
  • Information has been greatly extended and modernized to provide information on different object types
  • Initial version of Wolfram Compiler for translating portions of Wolfram Language code into optimized native machine code
  • Improvements to the external evaluation framework, including core performance enhancements, ExternalFunction to directly call external code and WebExecute to control web browsers

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!)

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.

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

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.

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

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 :-)

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.

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