Fire in the Hole! Exploring the Yellowstone Calderas with GeoGraphics and USGS Data

14 Jan 2020, 2:59 pm | Wolfram Blog

Yellowstone National Park has long been known for its active geysers. These geysers are a surface indication of subterranean volcanic activity in the park. In fact, Yellowstone is actually the location of the Yellowstone Caldera, a supervolcano: a volcano with an exceptionally large magma reservoir. The park has had a history of many explosive eruptions [...]

An Intriguing Identity: Connecting Distinct and Complete Integer Partitions

9 Jan 2020, 2:59 pm | Wolfram Blog

Number theory is a very old subject that in modern times has branched into various large areas. One of these is additive number theory, with problems like this: when is a prime the sum of two squares? Primes are part of the more classical area now called multiplicative number theory, so as this problem of [...]

Star Light, Star Bright: Stellar Aperture Photometry with the Wolfram Language

3 Jan 2020, 5:00 pm | Wolfram Blog

Stellar CCD aperture photometry is the technique of extracting information about the brightness of stars from a series of images collected over time. The light curve of a variable star can reveal useful information about the physics of the star, including a measure of its intrinsic brightness. Light curve analysis can yield information about eclipsing [...]

Crafty Computation: Cross-Stitch Patterns with the Wolfram Language

23 Dec 2019, 3:00 pm | Wolfram Blog

For many of us, programming represents leisure time just as much as work. Here at Wolfram, we have an incredibly creative group with a wide variety of hobbies, on the screen and off—including textile arts like cross-stitch. So when my colleague Jay suggested that I create a cross-stitch program using the Wolfram Language, I replied [...]

We’re Building Our Own ERP System: Ten Game-Changing Insights We Discovered along the Way

18 Dec 2019, 3:01 pm | Wolfram Blog

When people think about Wolfram technology, corporate enterprise resource management (ERP) isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. It certainly wasn’t our first thought when we started searching for a new solution to manage our own accounting, customer service, licensing and HR needs. But after looking at the current ERP offerings, we found that [...]

From an Hour of Code to a Lifetime of Coding with the Wolfram Language

12 Dec 2019, 2:59 pm | Wolfram Blog

Happy Hour of Code! There’s no better reason to start learning or continue honing your programming skills than the Hour of Code, an annual celebration of computer science during Computer Science Education Week. While we like to think that every hour is a great hour to code, we look forward to the Hour of Code [...]

Analyzing the Impact of Political Messages with the Wolfram Language

10 Dec 2019, 3:33 pm | Wolfram Blog

Much effort and money are spent trying to analyze whether political messages resonate with the electorate. With the UK in its final days before a general election, I thought I would see if I could gain such insight with minimal effort. My approach is simple: track the sentiment of tweets that mention each party. Since [...]

The Winners of the 2019 One-Liner Competition

5 Dec 2019, 3:00 pm | Wolfram Blog

This year’s Wolfram Technology Conference was host to the eighth annual One-Liner Competition, an event where attendees show us the most astounding things they can accomplish with 128 or fewer characters of Wolfram Language code. Submissions included games, card tricks and yoga exercises, all implemented with less than one tweet’s worth of the Wolfram Language. [...]
