Hypergeometric Functions: From Euler to Appell and Beyond

25 January 2024 @ 5:35 pm

Hypergeometric series appeared in the mid-seventeenth century; since then, they have played an important role in the development of mathematical and physical theories. Most of the elementary and special functions are members of the large hypergeometric class. Hypergeometric functions have been a part of Wolfram Language since Version 1.0. The following plot shows the implementation […]

Leveling Up in Life Sciences: Unleashing the Power of Computational Biology with Wolfram Language

18 January 2024 @ 7:40 pm

In days past, life sciences was reserved for those who had access to the proper equipment to observe and experiment with the organisms of the physical world.
