Notable productsEdit

Wolfram languageEdit

This is a programming language made by Wolfram Research.[2][3][4] Most Wolfram products are based on this language.

Wolfram MathematicaEdit

This is a modern technical computing system made by Wolfram Research.[5][6][7][8] It is used in many scientific areas including numerical analysis[9] and their subfields.[10] Anyone who are interested in Wolfram Mathematica demos can check the Wolfram Demonstrations Project.[11][12][13]

Wolfram AlphaEdit

This service is available on web browsers.[14][15][16] Users can use some features of Wolfram Mathematica on the Internet. Wolfram Alpha can also answer to some questions by searching answers on their own databases. It is also used in scientific education.[17][18][19]

Wolfram SystemModelerEdit

This is a technical platform for systems engineering.[20][21] This is also based on Wolfram technology.

Computable Document FormatEdit

This is an electronic document format. It is designed to allow interactive contents in documents.[22]


This is an online scientific encyclopedia managed by Wolfram Research.

Wolfram Technology ConferenceEdit

This is an annual conference about the latest technologies from Wolfram Research.[23][24]
