CalculationCenter 2 Adds New Calculation and Communication Capabilities
Volume 8, Issue 4CalculationCenter 2 from Wolfram Research, Inc. brings you new computing functionality, new communication capabilities, and further enhancements to this widely acclaimed calculation tool--all without compromising quality.
Initially released in March 2001, CalculationCenter has been highly rated by Macworld, Desktop Engineering, and PC Plus, among others, and was well received by users. CalculationCenter 2 builds upon the first version's innovative point-and-click interface concept, smart plotting, and unique InstantCalculators to provide a host of new features.
CalculationCenter 2 offers broad new statistics capabilities. The addition of analytical distribution functions for standard statistical distributions enables you to develop models that describe random behavior. Users can compare these models to experimental data to estimate parameters or can use them to generate random simulation data to test the likelihood of possible outcomes. Unlike typical statistics packages, CalculationCenter 2 works with the formulas related to statistical function, not just with the numbers, giving users much more insight and a greater range of problem-solving ability.
CalculationCenter's unique, intelligent error-correction technology has also been enhanced in Version 2. In the new version there are more cases in which CalculationCenter can save you time by suggesting what you meant to type. For users switching to CalculationCenter from Excel or Mathcad, there are even more features to help get you started in 10 minutes or less. Type or paste in a formula containing an Excel or a Mathcad function, and CalculationCenter will suggest either the equivalent or the closest function available, updating the formula with the click of a button.
Other new capabilities in CalculationCenter 2 include:
CalculationCenter 2 is available for Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP and Mac OS platforms. The suggested retail price is $295 (United States and Canada), making it highly competitive with other calculating solutions. For international pricing, please contact your local reseller.
