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.
Mathematica for University Use
Mathematica is installed on all instructional computers. If you would like to use it at your desk and do not find Mathematica installed on your University-owned computer, install the software using the Ivanti software portal.
Mathematica for Personal Use
Visit the Wolfram User Portal where you will provide your smu.edu email and specify your student or faculty/staff status. You will then be presented with links to available Wolfram products.
