Benefits & Features: 

Mathematica, a tool for symbolic and numerical computation, visualization, and application development, is promoted as a one-stop software package for technical work. Primarily used in scientific, engineering, and mathematical fields, Mathematica software also has parallel computing functionality built-in to permit multiple calculations to be carried out simultaneously. Mathematica Network licenses are term (i.e., subscription) licenses which the university renews annually.

In addition, Mathematica:

  • Can be used to obtain closed form solutions, analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and shared applications.
  • Integrates a numeric and symbolic computational engine, graphics system, programming language, documentation and advanced connectivity to other applications.
  • Is also available on the Tufts Research Cluster, which provides advanced computing power and parallel computing options
