Mathematica is a computational software program well suited for numerical analysis, graphical representation and functional analysis. It is capable of coding agent based models and running simulations.

Where can I use Mathematica on Campus?

Mathematica is available for access by any member of the AU community through the Virtual Computing Lab (VCL).

If you want staff on hand to assist you with Mathematica, come to the Research Applications and Methods Center during our regular hours. If you have a complex problem, please contact us by phone (202-885-3862) or email to set-up an appointment, otherwise, just drop in!

Mathematica can be accessed in the following campus computer labs:

Virtual Computing Lab
Anderson Computing Cluster
Math and Stat Lab (Hurst Hall)

Grid Mathematica is also available for use on AU’s High Performance Cluster. This requires special permissions to use.

How can I get Mathematica on my computer?

Mathematica installation is handled though the College of Arts and Sciences.

How can I get support using Mathematica for research or for class?

  • In-Class Tutorials (standard or custom tailored, request)

What workshops do you offer?

CTRL offers a variety of workshops each semester to train members of the AU community in the software that it supports.
