## What is Mathematica used for?

Mathematica is a symbolic mathematical computation program, sometimes called a computer algebra program, used in many scientific, engineering, mathematical, and computing fields. It was conceived by Stephen Wolfram and is developed by Wolfram Research of Champaign, Illinois.

**What is meant by in Mathematica?**

# is a placeholder for an expression. If you want to define a function, y(x)=x2, you just could do: f = #^2 & The & “pumps in” the expression into the # sign. That is important for pairing & and # when you have nested functions. f[2] (* 4 *)

**How do you find re Z?**

Re(z) = Re(a + bi) = a. Im(z) = Im(a + bi) = b. In particular, the imaginary part does not include the imaginary i term. It is important to note that if z is a complex number, then its real and imaginary parts are both real numbers.

### Is Mathematica for free?

**Is Mathematica worth learning?**

Mathematica is a wonderful environment to do science – not only math – and you will find it useful in many ways in the years to come. Consider it as an investment. Wolfram did a very good thing (marketing-wise it’s more a pusher’s move… ๐ ) with the Home edition, so that it is now affordable to almost everyone.

**What is Mathematica written?**

C

JavaC++Wolfram Language

Wolfram Mathematica/Programming languages

Mathematica is one of the more complex software systems ever constructed. Its source code is written in a combination of C and Mathematica, and for Version 5, the code for the kernel consists of about 1.5 million lines of C and 150,000 lines of Mathematica.

## How do you type special characters in Mathematica?

There are several ways to enter the special characters that are not present on a standard keyboard.

- Using a Full Character Name… Type \[ and the start of a character name.

**What is the IM function?**

Description. IM(A) returns the imaginary part b of the complex number a + bi.

**Is Mathematica a python?**

At heart, Mathematica is a program, whereas Python is a programming language. If you want to jump in knowing very little, you can do that with Mathematica. You don’t really have to โlearn how to program.โ (More than Wolfram|Alpha I guess, but still not much.)
