Vendor: Wolfram Research, Inc.
Supported Operating Systems: Windows, Mac and Linux.
General Description: Software used mainly for computation, but also for modeling, simulation, visualization, development, documentation, and deployment.
Availability: The product is installed in all ITS-managed Windows and Linux labs.
Scope of License:
- Campus-wide license for instruction and academic research.
- The product can be downloaded and installed on personal computers owned by students, faculty or staff.
Method for Obtaining:
In all cases you must request an activation key using your Mines email address.
- Students wishing to download or obtain an activation key for installation on their personal computer:
To download the software and obtain a Mathematica Activation Key from Wolfram, point your web browser to the Mines Wolfram User Portal for Students. It is important to use this link as it has the Mines access code embedded in it. Create an account with your Mines email address and select the Mathematica platform to receive an activation key and download link. These will both be emailed to you.
- To have Mathematica installed on an on-campus computer:
Submit a request for installation to the Mines Help Center. Once the request is received, computer-support staff will contact you to arrange a time for installation. For computers that stay on campus permanently, this is the preferred way to license Mathematica.
- Faculty or Staff who wish to manage the installation themselves, or install the software on an off-campus machine:
To download the software and obtain a Mathematica Activation Key from Wolfram, point your web browser to the Mines Wolfram User Portal for Faculty and Staff. It is important to use this link as it has the Mines access code embedded in it. Create an account with your Mines email address and select the Mathematica platform to receive an activation key and download link. These will both be emailed to you.
Wolfram Lightweight Grid Manager 9 is now available.
Lightweight Grid Manager makes it easy to utilize idle hardware for parallel Mathematica computations. When Lightweight Grid Manager is installed on a machine with Mathematica, any Mathematica users on that network can discover and connect to that machine’s Mathematica computation kernels from a remote computer, lending more CPU power to their computations. For more information, visit: http://www.wolfram.com/lightweight-grid-manager.
Individuals will need Mathematica installed and activated on their machine to take advantage of Lightweight Grid Manager. Free Lightweight Grid Manager licenses can be requested by Mathematica users through the following form, using their Mathematica activation key or the site license number: http://www.wolfram.com/services/premiersupport/lightweightgrid/index.cgi.
In case of difficulties running the software in a Mines ITS managed lab: Contact ITS via the Mines Help Center. We want the program to be properly installed, licensed and functioning. If you have questions about the use of the program, please contact your instructor, TA or lab manager.
