Mathematical software for the Mac, DOS, Windows, OS/2 and various Unix platforms from Wolfram Research, Inc., Champaign, IL ( Launched in 1988, Mathematica includes numerical, graphical and symbolic computation capabilities, all linked to the Mathematica programming language. Introduced in 2005, Version 5.2 supports 64-bit memory addressing and 64-bit long number partitioning. It also supports threading of numerical linear algebra over multiple CPUs and multicore processors.
