Mathematica (desktop & online)
A software package used by engineers, economists, mathematicians, and scientists to perform a range of specific technical computing tasks. Wolfram’s original flagship product for over 30 years.
Mathematica can be used for symbolic and numeric computation, visualization, and application development.
- Use of Mathematica for multi-paradigm data sciences, machine learning or neural nets, image processing, and unique data processing
- Use of Mathematica to obtain closed-form solutions, analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and shared applications
- A numeric and symbolic computational engine, graphics system, programming language, documentation, and advanced connectivity to other applications
Mathematica and Mathematica Online are best as a pair of products for calculations and sharing finished projects. Follow the download links below or submit a request to Tufts Technology Services or call TTS at (617-627-3376).

To set up Mathematica Online:
- Go to wolfram.com/siteinfo and click “Go to Mathematica Online”
- Enter Tufts login to connect or subscribe
- Optionally, download Wolfram Cloud app (iOS and Android)
You can request a cluster account by going to research.uit.tufts.edu and submitting the application form.
Before accessing Mathematica on the cluster, please contact Tufts Technology Services at 617-627-3376 or email@example.com for an assessment of whether or not your computer’s display meets Mathematica X-Windows support requirements. On occasion, the TTS Service Desk may need to make configuration changes for compatibility.
