What's New in Mathematica 5
With Mathematica 5, Wolfram Research has initiated a marked transformation in the world of technical computing, providing all the capabilities of both a dedicated numerical package and a programming language in one complete numeric and symbolic environment. Mathematica 5 can now do production-scale work in terms of both speed and scalability, without sacrificing any of its broad scope of features. This speed, scope, and scalability make Mathematica 5 a uniquely compelling all-around technical system for institution-wide adoption.
Mathematica 5 is primarily an advanced algorithm release with a large number of newly developed and refined key technologies, including those that make Mathematica’s performance so outstanding. New and improved numerical algorithms and routines allow Mathematica 5 to run as fast as or faster than many dedicated numerical software packages and libraries. Mathematica 5 also includes a completely new numerical differential equation solver and many other algorithmic improvements.
Mathematica 5 further extends Wolfram Research’s position as the leader in providing integration with other software and standards. In addition to an updated version of J/Link and MathLink, Mathematica’s standard connections to Java and C/C++, Mathematica 5 comes with a fully functional technology preview of .NET/Link, a much requested feature that allows developers to seamlessly integrate Mathematica into applications using Microsoft’s .NET Framework.
