NKS|Online was recently featured in USA TODAY's "Hot Sites" section. USA TODAY says, "No more and no less than the full, searchable text of the landmark book, which was published to great tumult in 2002. Many in the sciences believe that what Wolfram's lain out in the print version's 1197 pages will fundamentally re-organize the way we view the universe, and some folks have criticized him for not making such a significant text more freely available. Now he has. This is probably the most rigorous reading you'll do all year, and--if you're willing to work--extraordinarily rewarding."

Scott Kim's monthly puzzle column "Bogglers" in Discover Magazine features Mathematica in the March issue. A link to this month's column can be found near the bottom of the page

Kim has a paragraph on Mathematica found at the link under "Solution" that states:

"One of the most far-reaching features of Mathematica is a built-in programming language that lets you create interactive applications that can work with other programs or across the Web. Thousands of add-on packages have been written, covering areas as diverse as statistics, number theory, optics, audio-signal processing, and blackbody radiation. Even artists have gotten into the act (check out Learn more about Mathematica at"


Dragan Stancevic has written a very positive review of Mathematica 4.2 in the March issue of Linux Journal. He states:

"The fundamental idea behind Mathematica is what makes it such a versatile and powerful computing platform. Everything in Mathematica is represented as a symbolic expression....This opens up so many possibilities I was literally overwhelmed by the sheer number of things I could try for the review....

"...It's probably the most beautiful piece of Linux software I have ever used. During my review, I couldn't help but spend hours and hours just experimenting with the capabilities and exploring the options."

Stancevic was assisted in his review by Dr. Helen Moore, who is quoted as saying, "Mathematica is great. It's pretty much the best commercial package available, both for symbolic and numerical computations."


SOFTWARE WORTH PAYING FOR's review of Mathematica 4.2

In the review Moshe Bar writes:

"This year, once more, I fished out my credit-card to pay for my upgrade of Mathematica to version 4.2. The new version brings new, thrilling features. Next to new and enhanced connectivity to Java, XML, and the Web, it also offers new features for linear programming, statistics, optimization, combinatorics (a favorite subject of mine), and graph theory. Wolfram, the makers of Mathematica, also announced a grid version of Mathematica that allows you to scale out your calculation on a farm of computer nodes. I rather prefer to scale out my Mathematica computation jobs with Qlusters' OS, of which I am one of the developers. Mathematica is to serious mathematicians what olive oil is to chefs. If you do serious math, you can't go wrong with it."
