What is Mathematica?

Mathematica is a software system and computer language for use in mathematical applications and also ideal for communicating scientific ideas. The three classes of Mathematica computations are: numerical, symbolic, and graphical.

At the core of Mathematica, it is a very powerful symbolic language. It was conceived by Stephen Wolfram and is developed by Wolfram Research of Champaign, Illinois. Thus Wolfram Language is the programming language used in Mathematica. Mathematica is more than a calculations package. It is a symbolic, mathematical tool used by thousands of scientists around the world. Mathematica can do math, Algebra, calculus, differential equations, and many more features round out this remarkable software.
