New Software for Scientists and Engineers: The good and the bad

June 30, 2007 8:00 pm | by John A. Wass, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

The month of May brought several remarkable software releases from two of my favorite companies, as well as a first experience with a new version of Windows from everyone’s favorite whipping boy, Microsoft. A full review of Wolfram’s new Mathematica 6 appears in this issue, and a review of SAS’ new JMP 7 is coming soon. For now, I’d like to share a little enthusiasm for both new versions that are far from the simple cosmetics

A Very Significant Advance in Computational Power: Mathematica 6 adds nearly 1,000 new functions, extensive interactive graphics capabilities

June 30, 2007 8:00 pm | by John A. Wass, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

Readers of my columns (the few, the proud, the technogeeks) will know that one of my pet peeves is technical computing upgrades that are mainly cosmetic, have very few substantial additions to the analytic menu, and are accompanied by enough superlatives to announce the second coming. Well, this isn't one of those. The Wolfram folks may have let the marketing department run riot with some of the flash, but Mathematica 6 is light years ahead
