Wolfram Mathematica as the universal tool for studying, teaching and research. The introductory course.

Wolfram Mathematica is one of the best computational system ever created. It is available for students and lecturers of DTPA due to financial support of DThPh Foundation. It provides flexible and user-friendly environment for calculation, programming, studying and research. In the course we cover main tools of WM and show how it can be used as the integrated solution for teaching courses at the Department and research. Specifically, the course will be useful for students of 1st and 2nd years since we  use WM in solving problems of General Physics course (Mechanics etc). Everybody (especially those who have WM account) is welcome. 

The course will be delivered regularly on Fridays, at 1pm in room 31
Lecturers: Prof. V. Kulinskii and  Cand. Phys-Math Sci I. Shapovalov

PS The creator of Wolfram Mathematica is the theoretical physicist(!) Stephen Wolfram
