Mathematica: Calculus


There may be broken links in this article, the GROK staff has been notified and is working to resolve the issue.

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
