An Interface From S to Mathematica

Volume 2, Issue 1
Javier F. Cabrera, Rutgers University
Allan R. Wilks, AT&T Bell Laboratories

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.
