I've been a professor of mathematics at The University of North Carolina - Asheville since 1997. I've been using Mathematica since I started graduate school in mathematics at Ohio State in 1989. At that time, we used version 1.1 (as I recall) to teach calculus in our Calculus and Mathematica classes. I've used it pretty much continuously in my teaching and research since then.

In addition to my posts on SE, you can find some of my papers, teaching notebooks and other Mathematica based oddities strewn throughout my website.

In recent years, I've also worked as a part-time consultant to Wolfram Research focusing on development of mathematical content for WolframAlpha.

comment 2d heat conduction equation: Boundary and initial conditions are inconsistent
@george2079 The new reference site is set up to hold lots of new information of finite element methods. Most of these pages don't yet exist, but presumably will in the near future: reference.wolfram.com/search/?q=fem

It's possible that the techniques outlined in the answer to this question might help.

@Amzoti I also just noticed that you asked about the GIF, so I added that as well.

@Amzoti Glad you like it! I've added just a little commentary that might explain a few things. Have fun!

comment Third argument of Compile
Good question! I consider myself pretty good at using Compile but find the third argument to be a by mysterious.

comment Finding a number which has the same remainder when dividing certain other numbers
@shrx Taste? I personally find n=n+1 to be a bit more clear. I am aware that a good C compiler will replace n=n+1 with n++ but I think there's not much difference in Mathematica. If anything, n=n+1 is very slightly faster.

Very nice! I don't know that LaplacianFilter existed when I first did this. :)

comment Iteration of multiple functions that feed into each other
I recommend you write a single function T[{S_, c_, y_, x_, t_, F_}]] and iterate a few times starting from a list of length 6 using NestList first. As others have observed, there are some questionable points in your function definitions, so I'm hesitant to jump in myself.
