An Elementary Introduction to the Wolfram Language by Stephen Wolfram

By Stephen Wolfram

The Wolfram Language represents an incredible enhance in programming languages that makes modern computation available to all people. distinct in its strategy of creating in enormous wisdom and automation, the Wolfram Language scales from a unmarried line of easy-to-understand interactive code to million-line creation platforms. This ebook presents an straightforward creation to the Wolfram Language and smooth computational considering. It assumes no past wisdom of programming, and is appropriate for either technical and non-technical university and high-school scholars, in addition to a person with an curiosity within the most recent know-how and its sensible software.

Informatik kompakt: Eine grundlegende Einfuhrung mit Java

Die Autoren geben eine fundierte Einf? hrung in die Informatik, die von Anfang an die Zusammenh? nge zwischen den Teilgebieten des Faches betont. Das Buch ist kompakt, weil der gemeinsame Kern der verschiedenen Informatikgebiete betrachtet wird. In einer integrativen Sichtweise werden Modellierung, abstrakte Datentypen, Algorithmen sowie nebenl?

Example text

5 Make a number line plot of the squares {1, 4, 9, 16, 25}. 6 Make a list of pie charts with 1, 2 and 3 identical segments. 7 Make a column of pie charts with 1, 2 and 3 identical segments. Q&A How do pie charts work in the Wolfram Language? As in any pie chart, the wedges have relative sizes determined by the relative sizes of numbers in the list. In the Wolfram Language, the wedge for the first number starts at the 9 o’clock position, and then subsequent wedges read clockwise. The colors of the wedges are chosen in a definite sequence.

No. {1, 2} + {1, 2, 3} won’t work. {1, 2, 0} + {1, 2, 3} would be fine, if that’s what you mean. Can there be a list with nothing in it? Yes. {} is a list of length 0, with no elements. It’s usually called the null list or the empty list. Tech Notes ◼ IntegerDigits [5671] gives digits in base 10. IntegerDigits [5671, 2] gives digits in base 2. You can use any base you want. FromDigits[{5, 6, 7, 1}] reconstructs a number from its list of digits. ◼ Rest[����] gives all the elements of ���� after the first one.

7 Make a table of lists of digits for the first 10 squares. 8 Make a list line plot of the number of digits in each of the first 100 squares. 9 Make a table of the first digits of the first 20 squares. 10 Make a list line plot of the first digits of the first 100 squares. } (list) in Table[n ^ 2, {n, 5}] mean? A list is always a way of collecting things together. Here what it’s collecting is the variable n and its range 5. In the Wolfram Language, this kind of use of a list is called an iterator specification.
