Learning Mathematica: Using the Standard Packages

Volume 3, Issue 2
Spring 1993
Nancy Blachman

One of the virtues of Mathematica is its extensibility. If the more than 800 built-in functions are not sufficient for the problem you are solving, you may find the functions you need in a package, a file containing definitions of functions written in the Mathematica language. This article explains how to load and use the standard packages distributed with Mathematica.
