What is Mathematica: "At a superficial level, Mathematica is an amazing, yet easy-to-use calculator. The world's most comprehensive set of mathematical, scientific, engineering, and financial functions is ready-to-use--often with just one mouse click or command. However, Mathematica functions work for any size or precision of number, compute with symbols, are easily represented graphically, automatically switch algorithms to get the best answer, and even check and adjust the accuracy of their own results. This sophistication means trustworthy answers every time, even for those inexperienced with the mechanics of a particular calculation."  [Read More]

On Campus Use Only

If you wish to have Mathematica installed at your office or lab location please contact the helpdesk at extension x2640 or . Please indicate on your request when and where you would like this installed. A technician will be in touch to coordinate the installation.

Home Use (faculty/staff/students)

To request Mathematica Desktop, Mathematica Online, and Wolfram|Alpha Pro, follow the directions below.

*Existing users who have single-machine activation keys that are marked as "auto renew" will have their activation keys automatically extended through your next renewal date of 30-JUN-2022.

Users whose activation keys are not automatically extended will be sent an email with instructions for requesting a new activation key from Wolfram.

Employees with home-use licenses will be sent an email with instructions to extend their licenses.

Thank you, and please contact us with questions.
