**The Central Limit Theorem with Mathematica 6**Welcome to IT’s seminar on Mathematica Sam Gordji, ccsam@olemiss.edu Weir 107**General Information**• Questions will be answered during the seminar • What is Mathematica: • Mathematica does mathematical operations • Its competitors are MathWorks, Maple, and others • University decided on getting Mathematica after looking into other similar packages**General Information**• Email contact • Email your questions to mathadm@olemiss.edu • Any full time student or faculty may install Mathematica from: https://secure.olemiss.edu/mathemat/index_math.jsp • Please fill out the performance report and leave your email address so we may contact you for follow up questions**General Information**• This seminar is for beginners and covers The “Central Limiting Theorem” and a Few other functions • MathWorld is a site supported by Mathematica and contains solutions to many mathematical problems • All the work in Mathematica is performed in a Notebook**Introduction**• Mathematica is a very powerful and user friendly package that most students from many disciplines may use • NetworkMathematica is a licensing program for sites that use multiple copies of Mathematica on a single network • Mathematica is available to students, faculty and staff (UM Oxford) at no cost • IT has several articles on Mathematica. These articles are designed to familiarize users with different parts of Mathematica**Introduction (cont.)**• The webpages for these articles and the Demo Notebook called “Math_sem0.nb” may be downloaded • http://www.mcsr.olemiss.edu/appssubpage.php?pagename=mathcamp.inc • Other IT articles on Mathematica may be downloaded from http://www.mcsr.olemiss.edu/mathematica/fall_sem/**Introduction (cont.)**• Some of Mathematica’s Webpages: http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/BySubject/Mathematica/ApplicationPackages/ http://www.wolfram.com/services/ http://www.wolfram.com/siteinfo/ • The last one contains UM site Information and help users to find various information such as services available to UM users, etc.**Introduction (Cont.)**• Mathlink • Mathlink integrates Mathematica and Java, permits Java to be called from Mathematica • Mathematica’s main function is to perform Mathematical operations • This seminar is based on how Mathematica is being used at UM**Today We’ll Cover**• Mathematica’s Startup Palette • Let’s look at First Five Minutes with Mathematica, mostly with the “Slider” • Using Help finding a function The “Central Limiting Theorem”
