What is Mathematica?

Mathematica is the world's most powerful global computing environment. Ideal for use in engineering, mathematics, finance, physics, chemistry, biology, and a wide range of other fields, it makes possible a new level of automation in algorithmic computation, interactive manipulation, and dynamic presentation--as well as a whole new way of interacting with the world of data.

Features include instant dynamic interactivity, high-impact adaptive visualization, symbolic interface construction, load-on-demand curated data, and more.

Is Mathematica available for my machine's operating system?

Mathematica is available for on-site machines running Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Home-use licenses are available for machines running Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

How do I get a copy of Mathematica?

On-Site Installations

If you wish to install Mathematica at your office or lab location please contact Jeff Lehman to obtain a license. Prices are below:

Home Use - Faculty and Staff

Employees may receive a free home-use Mathematica license for a personally owned computer to continue their work at home. To request a home-use license, please fill out the Home-Use License Request Form. To obtain the Huntington University license number for the software, send a request to Jeff Lehman.

Home Use - Students

Students can order their own inexpensive home-use Mathematica for Students license to install and use on their personally owned computer by visiting http://store.wolfram.com/catalog/.

How do I get a password for Mathematica?

When you install MathLM, a single-user Mathematica license, or Mathematica for Students, you will need to register your license to receive a password.

If installing Mathematica on a University-owned machine, a password is not required. Instead, you will need the name or IP address of the license server running MathLM.

If installing a Mathematica home-use license on a personally owned machine, you'll need your home-use license number. You'll also need the MathID # that is generated and displayed by the product during the installation process. Tips for locating your MathID number are posted here.

When does my license expire?

Mathematica expires each year on July 15. To continue using Mathematica, follow the instructions below:

On-Site Network Installations

n/a - controlled by MathLM on license server.

Home Use - Faculty and Staff

To continue to use Mathematica, please fill out the Home-Use License Request Form. After you obtain a password extension, you may continue to use the license until July 15 of the following year.

Where can I find documentation for Mathematica?

Full information on the functions, capabilities, and unified structure of the Mathematica system is available online through the Wolfram Mathematica Documentation Center.

How can I obtain technical support?

You can receive technical support by submitting a support ticket through the Information and Technology Services Help Desk.

What other benefits are included with the site license?

Wolfram Workbench

Wolfram Workbench is an integrated development environment (IDE) for building large-scale technical solutions with Mathematica. If you want to develop code written in the Mathematica language, you can request a free copy of Wolfram Workbench. Visit the Wolfram website to find out more about Wolfram Workbench.

webMathematica Amateur

webMathematica Amateur will allow you to create websites that allow users to compute and visualize results directly from a web browser. A limited number of webMathematica Amateur licenses are available for those who wish to showcase their work over the web. To request a license, please contact Francis Jones. Visit the Wolfram website to find out more about webMathematica Amateur.

The Mathematica Journal

Free online access to The Mathematica Journal is available through http://www.wolfram.com/premiersupport. Enter Huntington University's site license number and click on the link to The Mathematica Journal on this page to read current and past issues posted online.

How do I get more information about student licensing?

Mathematica is commonly used in our classes. You should buy a student edition of this world-class mathematical software. It is only a fraction of the retail cost, yet fully-functional! The only difference is that each page you print will have “student edition” printed at the bottom. You can also get it for just 1 semester for an even lower price. You can buy it through the website. For support questions, you can ask your professors or contact the Wolfram Student Support Forum.
