Mathematica 11 in Education and Research

Andrew Dorsett

Event Location: 

Mohler Lab, Room 453

This technical talk will show live calculations in Mathematica 11 and other Wolfram technologies relevant to courses and research. Specific topics include:* Visualize data, functions, surfaces, and more in 2D or 3D* Store and share documents locally or in the Wolfram Cloud* Use the Predictive Interface to get suggestions for the next useful calculation or function options* Access trillions of bits of on-demand data* Easily turn static examples into mouse-driven, dynamic applications* Get deep support for specialized areas including machine learning, time series, image processing, parallelization, and control systems, and 3D printing with no add-ons required* Compute in the Wolfram CloudCurrent users will benefit from seeing the many improvements and new features of Mathematica 11 (https://www.wolfram.com/mathematica/new-in-11/), but prior knowledge of Mathematica is not required.
