An Elementary Introduction to the Wolfram Language by Stephen Wolfram

By Stephen Wolfram

The Wolfram Language represents an important improve in programming languages that makes modern computation obtainable to every body. exact in its process of establishing in huge wisdom and automation, the Wolfram Language scales from a unmarried line of easy-to-understand interactive code to million-line creation platforms. This ebook presents an straightforward advent to the Wolfram Language and smooth computational considering. It assumes no past wisdom of programming, and is acceptable for either technical and non-technical collage and high-school scholars, in addition to someone with an curiosity within the most modern know-how and its useful software.

3 Compute the negation of the color orange. 02. 05. 6 Blend the colors pink and yellow. 05. 1, each with a hue equal to its value. 9 Make a purple color swatch of size 100. 10 Make a list of red swatches with sizes from 10 to 100 in steps of 10. 11 Display the number 999 in red at size 100. 12 Make a list of the first 10 squares in which each value is styled at its size. 13 Use Part and RandomInteger to make a length-100 list in which each element is randomly Red, Yellow or Green. 14 Use Part to make a list of the first 50 digits of 2^1000, in which each digit has a size equal to 3 times its value.

Range[-2, 2] gives {-2, -1, 0, 1, 2}. Range[2, -2] gives {}, but Range[2, -2, -1] gives {2, 1, 0, -1, -2}. Tech Notes ◼ If you specify steps that don’t fit evenly in the range you give, Range and Table just go as far as the steps take them, potentially stopping before the upper limit. 2 of the Wolfram Language. In earlier versions, this had to be specified as Table[x, {20}]. am/eiwl-7 25 7|Colors and Styles The Wolfram Language doesn’t just handle things like numbers. It also for example handles things like colors.

To make the second element, n is taken to be 2, so a[n] is a[2], and so on. n is called a variable because it’s varying as we make the different elements of the list. Make a table that gives the value of n + 1 when n goes from 1 to 10: ������� ������� Table[n + 1, {n, 10}] {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11} 20 An Elementary Introduction to the Wolfram Language Make a table of the first 10 squares: ������� ������� Table[n ^ 2, {n, 10}] {1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81, 100} With Table, you can make tables of anything.
