Mathematica Basic Principles II, includes pattern matching (free)

for whom?

Exising users who participated with the Mathematica — Basic Principles I course.

about the course

Mathematica is very large and powerful program that enables the user to do many complicated computations in a very simple way. This course helps to further increase your insight in the general structure of Mathematica.

Partly building upon the first course this course expands further on:
  • The structure of Mathematica expressions and ways to manipulate them,
  • functions defined using underscores and pure (or anonymous) functions
  • functions that have functions as arguments, such as Select, Gatherby
  • new in Mathematica 10: associations
  • pattern matching and the function Cases, sequences
  • how to define a function on a given domain only, with optional arguments, etc
  • options


Regular courses are held at our office in Amsterdam. Sometimes we provide the courses on site. The location is then mentioned in the agenda below.
