Introduction My primary degree is in physics and secondary in software engineering. Prior to learning wolfram language, I knew languages such as C++, Java and Python (excluding web development), yet I found it rather difficult to learn wolfram language. I think the difficulty was rather due to extensive exposure to a particular programming paradigm (object-...

On the home page of the Documentation Center, in the lower left-hand corner, there is a label that says "Common How Tos", Do a mouse-over on it; it will turn red, showing that it is a link. Double-click on it and you will taken to a portal to many of the tutorials contained the documentation, including links to "Do Calculus" and "Work with Differential ...

You could start looking at the online reference, such as: http://reference.wolfram.com/language/guide/TimeSeries.html http://reference.wolfram.com/language/guide/SignalProcessing.html

I made an example in Mathematica, hope this help. dataSet = Import["/Volumes/USB/sync/Mathematica/Time Series Analysis/AirPassengers.csv", "HeaderLines" -> 1 ,"DateStringFormat" -> {"Year", "-", "Month"}]; ts = TimeSeries[dataSet]; testStationarity[ts_] := Module[{ma, sd}, ma = MovingMap[Mean, ts, Quantity[12, "Months"]]; sd = MovingMap[...

You first need to familiarize yourself with the syntax and general structure of the Wolfram Language, which Mathematica uses. As a form of introduction you could look at a few Wolfram introductory screencasts, for instance: Hands-on Start to Mathematica Functional Programming: Quick Start Once you have done that, dive straight into the extensive ...

Have you tried to extend the definition of NonCommutativeMultiply? Unprotect[NonCommutativeMultiply]; x_ ** 1 := x 1 ** x_ := x x_ ** Power[x_, -1] := 1 Power[x_, -1] ** x_ := 1 Protect[NonCommutativeMultiply]; After evaluating the above code y ** 1 y 1 ** y y y ** (1/y) 1 (1/y) ** y 1

Well, just to say it ... have a look at http://mathematica.stackexchange.com A great source anyway is the Wolfram Blog, but in particular I like The Ultimate Univariate Probability Distribution Explorer. You can find A plot gallery for Mathematica 9, if the author sees this he makes possibly an update to v10. The http://www.mathematica-journal.com/ is ...

Re: "...what are its uses?" eqn = Sqrt[x + 4] == x - 2; soln = Solve[eqn, x, VerifySolutions -> False] (* {{x -> 0}, {x -> 5}} *) Results from Solve (also NSolve, DSolve, NDSolve, and others) are returned as Rules rather than setting the value of any variables. To verify solutions: eqn /. soln (* {False, True} *) The first solution was ...

Read some of the sections at http://reference.wolfram.com/language/tutorial/VirtualBookOverview.html Also, avoid functional programming until you are familiar with the basics.

Your constructions were very instructive. Are you, to put your first question differently, asking why it is mod gets the downvalues in all three case; especially when examples 2 and 3 clearly show that Pattern is the head? This may not help but the documentation of the symbol ":" says that s_h is equivalent to s: _h--the name s is given to the pattern with ...

Best Cheat Sheet so far... Pretty much the best Cheat Sheet I have come across so far, is the following one by Hugo Touchette, a theoretical Physicist teaching at the National Institute for Theoretical Physics, Stellenbosch, South Africa: Mathematica commands summary The sheet has been last updated in August 2014. There is btw also some useful $\LaTeX$ - ...

I'm a beginner, and I find it interesting to explore the documentation. Some of the commands I've read about have given me interesting ideas for programs. Also, I'm not sure if this has been mentioned, but the Wolfram Demonstrations Project has a bunch of amazing programs you can play with and download the code from.

Stephen Wolfram: An Elementary introduction to Wolfram Language Also, this does not belong 100% here but it is an overshelming list of reference to be missed. A Bibliography of Publications about the Mathematica Symbolic Algebra Language
