Accessing Algorithms in Mathematica

Whenever you use Mathematica, you are accessing the world's largest collection of computational algorithms.

Mathematica automatically chooses appropriate algorithms for each computation.

Mathematica uses state-of-the-art algorithms for factoring integers. The result is given as a list of factors and exponents.

This generates a 2D table corresponding to a matrix.

This displays the table in matrix form.

This computes the null space of the matrix.

Mathematica can solve differential equations both symbolically and numerically.

Here Mathematica solves a nonlinear differential equation numerically. The answer is an interpolating function that implicitly represents the whole solution.

Here is a parametric plot of the solution. The /. tells Mathematica to substitute the solution for x.
