Dynamic Visualization
Building on Mathematica's integrated symbolic architecture it becomes easy to introduce powerful dynamic behavior into any aspect of visualization. Single Mathematica symbolic functions are all it takes to set up full interactive parameter explorations, animations, dynamic annotation or drill-down information viewers.
