By Stephen Wolfram

The Wolfram Language represents an incredible develop in programming languages that makes modern computation obtainable to all people. specified in its process of establishing in immense wisdom and automation, the Wolfram Language scales from a unmarried line of easy-to-understand interactive code to million-line construction structures. This booklet presents an common advent to the Wolfram Language and smooth computational considering. It assumes no earlier wisdom of programming, and is acceptable for either technical and non-technical collage and high-school scholars, in addition to a person with an curiosity within the most up-to-date expertise and its useful program.

9 Make a table of the first digits of the first 20 squares. 10 Make a list line plot of the first digits of the first 100 squares. } (list) in Table[n ^ 2, {n, 5}] mean? A list is always a way of collecting things together. Here what it’s collecting is the variable n and its range 5. In the Wolfram Language, this kind of use of a list is called an iterator specification. } (list) in Table[n ^ 2, {n, 5}] needed? So one can easily generalize to multidimensional arrays, like Table[x ^ 2 - y ^ 2, {x, 5}, {y, 5}].

1 Use RegularPolygon to draw a triangle. 2 Make graphics of a red circle. 3 Make a red octagon. 1. 5 Make a column of a red and green triangle. 6 Make a list of pink regular polygons with between 5 and 10 sides. 7 Make a graphic of a purple cylinder. 8 Make a list of randomly colored polygons with 8 down to 3 sides, and apply Graphics to the list, to show them all overlaid. Q&A How can I make graphics with several objects? Section 14 will explain. To do so requires understanding coordinates. Why use Circle[ ], not just Circle?
