Mathematica Technical Talks

Just a quick note to let you know I will be on campus to give two Mathematica technical talks on Thursday, October 13. If you haven’t seen Mathematica lately, you will be surprised to see how suitable Mathematica is for projects and course examples in any STEM, business and economics, or liberal arts field.

My talks are given 100% in Mathematica, and a big part of what I want to discuss is the exciting new free-form input in Mathematica 8. Here’s a quick video preview:


“Mathematica in Education and Research”

9-9:50am & 10-10:50am, including Q&A

Room 214, Mechanical Engineering Bldg., UVA

Attendees with no prior experience report that these talks help with getting started using Mathematica language and workflow.

All attendees will receive an electronic copy of the examples, which can be adapted to individual projects.

Please feel free to pass this invitation on to colleagues and students–please let me know if you plan to attend, so I can make sure we have enough space. I look forward to meeting you!

American Mathematical Society Books Online

Reposted from the February 19, 2010 Scout Report:

American Mathematical Society Books Online [pdf]

The American Mathematical Society (AMS) was founded in 1888 in order to further mathematical research and scholarship. Since that time, they have embarked on a number of outreach programs designed to educate the public about the importance of various mathematical endeavors. In the past several years, they have been developing the AMS Books Online website, and it’s quite a resource. The works were all originally published by the AMS, and they can be browsed by author or subject. The subject headings include analysis, general interest, logic and foundations, and number theory. Users can download individual chapters from each book, and there are currently over thirty books available on the site. Visitors should make sure and check back, as there are plans to add books to the site periodically.
