Has anybody explored this Software Program ? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematica http://www.wolfram.com/mathematica/trial/ Looks like a Excellent Program for mathematical modeling and visualization. Thanks & Regards, Prashant S Akerkar

It's extremely expensive unless you're a student, in which case it's modestly expensive (for a student). It's very good at calculus and analysis and pretty good at most areas of math. The recent versions include lots of data sets from fields outside of math in an (apparent) attempt to broaden its appeal; it seems to work pretty poorly outside of pure math. Within math the only program that comes close to its scope is Maple, though within particular fields there are programs that improve on it. For example, in number theory PARI/GP is usually better; in algebra GAP is usually more appropriate; in statistics R is more powerful; for linear algebra Matlab is hard to beat. If you have the money and you don't see yourself working in one of those narrower fields Mathematica is a good choice. Even if you do it's worth using if your university has a licensing program that lets you use a copy for cheap or free.

Is it possible to built Mathematica v 8.0 and Wolfram Alpha Software Application Multilingual in near future ? i.e Content displayed in Multiple Languages for the Software Desktop Application viz English, French, German, Chinese, Japanese etc As a Example in Wolfram Alpha we input the radius (r) of a circle = 1, Answer is Pi=22/7=3.14 plotting the Circle figure with radius =1. Now the User entering the text in English (for English version), if the user is entering the french version, the end user of the application will type in french characters and the answer will be in french content. Thanks & Regards, Prashant S Akerkar

Mathematica v 8.0 Desktop Software program available in different languages. > Globalization For example, Mathematica in English version, Mathematica in French Version, Mathematica in German version and so on ….. i.e Different executables (.exe) for each language Flavor. OR In a single Mathematica ver 8.0 Software Application (.exe) giving a choice of selecting Languages in dropdownlist. For example if the end user selects English from dropdownlist, the user will be redirected to English version. For example if the end user selects French from dropdownlist, the user will be redirected to French version. For example if the end user selects German from dropdownlist, the user will be redirected to German version. and so on for different languages .... Thanks & Regards, Prashant S Akerkar

Single execuable(.exe)  All Languages Support for Content  In a single Mathematica ver 8.0 Software Application (.exe) giving a choice of selecting Languages in drop down list. Drop down list i mean is a combo box giving choice of selecting Languages which is the first form  Startup (Similar to a Home Page in Web application) while running the executable (.exe). The default content for selecting a choice of language will be English. For example if the end user selects English from drop down list, the user will be redirected to English version and the subsequent forms will be English content For example if the end user selects French from drop down list, the user will be redirected to French version and the subsequent forms will be French content For example if the end user selects German from drop down list, the user will be redirected to German version and the subsequent forms will be German content and so on for different languages …..
