Mathematica

Mathematica logo

Wolfram's Mathematica is a modern technical computing system spanning most areas of technical computing, including neural networks, machine learning, image processing, geometry, data science, visualizations and more. At UGA, it is widely used for instructional purposes. The departments of genetics, mathematics, physics and astronomy, the Terry College of Business, the College of Engineering, and the Center for Computational Quantum Chemistry sponsor this product through a cost-sharing program. 

Students

If you are required to use Mathematica for a class or research project, your instructor should email a list of eligible students requiring access to itcla@uga.edu .

Once your access has been granted, you will receive an email directly from Wolfram with download and installation instructions.

You are allowed one installation. Your installation is active for one year. To continue using the software, you must seek permission again. 

If you are not using Mathematica as part of a class or research project, you must have permission from an instructor in one of the sponsoring departments (genetics, mathematics, physics and astronomy, the Terry College of Business, the College of Engineering, or the Center for Computational Quantum Chemistry). Your instructor should email this permission itlca@uga.edu

Graduate students who are not affiliated with one of the sponsoring departments but require an individual installation may purchase a license from EITS C&L. A valid UGA account is required for billing purposes.

Access is also available is some campus computer labs. 

You can find instructions for installing Mathematica here.

Support and troubleshooting assistance is available here.

Faculty, Staff and IT Professionals

Who can use Mathematica and where can they use it?

  • Instructors and researchers in the departments of genetics, mathematics, physics and astronomy, the Terry College of Business, the College of Engineering, and the Center for Computational Quantum Chemistry may use the software, as they are part of the cost-sharing program.
  • Access for students and graduate students requires faculty authorization via a class roll. You may also email the authorization to itcla@uga.edu

How do I get or give access if I'm in a participating department or unit?

Contact your departmental IT support staff. They will email authorization to EITS C&L at itcla@uga.edu

C&L will submit your information to the Wolfram portal.

Wolfram will send you an email with download and activation instructions to extend your license. 

Each semester, EITS C&L will email participating departments' IT staff, asking for class rolls for Mathematica. Your departmental IT should forward this request to their faculty and staff. 

If your students are required to use Mathematica for a class or research project, you should email a list of eligible students requiring access to itcla@uga.edu .

C&L will submit this information to the Wolfram portal. Once students' access has been granted, they will receive an email directly from Wolfram with download and installation instructions.

Students are allowed one installation. Student installations are active for one year. To continue using the software, they must seek permission again. 

If a student is not using Mathematica as part of a class or research project, they must have permission from an instructor in one of the sponsoring departments (genetics, mathematics, physics and astronomy, the Terry College of Business, the College of Engineering, or the Center for Computational Quantum Chemistry). This permission can be emailed to itlca@uga.edu

Graduate students who are not affiliated with one of the sponsoring departments but require an individual installation may purchase a license from EITS C&L. A valid UGA account is required for billing purposes.

Access is also available is some campus computer labs. 

Participating IT staff should have usernames set up in the Wolfram portal for downloads and updates.

Contact itcla@uga.edu if you need assistance. 

More information about becoming part of the cost-sharing program for Mathematica is available on the EITS Cost Recovery Services site.

FAQs

How do I get help installing or activating Mathematica?

Instructions for installing and activating Mathematica can be found here.

Where can I find information on the Wolfram Function Repository?

The Wolfram Function Repository is the go-to place for functions that aren't already built into the Wolfram Language. The repository contains a wide variety of new functions submitted by our talented user community and Wolfram staff, all immediately accessible from Wolfram Language 12. Any user can submit a function for review and publication using the Function Resource Definition Notebook, extending the Wolfram Language one function at a time with no need to create or download large libraries.
