Mathematica: Calculus

Mathematica utilizes centuries of mathematical development, along with constantly updated methods discovered at Wolfram Research, into a small number of powerful functions and algorithms that are capable of reaching "almost every integral and differential equation of which a closed form can be found."

Below are a few examples of various commands used to evaluate calculus functions and algorithms:

D (PartialD) -- partial derivatives, of scalar or vector functions
Dt -- total derivatives
Integrate (Integral) -- symbolic integrals in one or more dimensions
