S is a programming language developed for interactive data analysis.
This paper describes a new interface in the S language to Mathematica,
which allows the S user to have direct access to Mathematica through
a co-process mechanism. It effectively extends the capabilities of S in
two areas: high-precision numerical computations and symbolic computations.
A number of examples of the interface are given, including differentiation,
integration and maximum likelihood estimation.
