New in 6.0: Dynamic Interactivity
Mathematica 6.0 defined a major new paradigm for computing, centered around the concept of the symbolic dynamic interface. Built on Mathematica's unique symbolic architecture, the new paradigm allows instant creation of complete dynamic interfaces fully integrated with all Mathematica's capabilities—and readily scaled using powerful new language constructs.
Manipulate — instantly create an interface to control any graphic or computation
Dynamic — represent a continually updated dynamic expression
