The math dept has a license for Mathematica, but only for use on the single machine,

`math`

(which is short for "mathematica") in an xterm window. You should get a message that mathematica is trying to start up on bessel and a new window should pop up in a few seconds. If you want a fancier x-window version of mathematica, complete with equation making pallettes, etc., type

`mathematica`

If these commands don't successfully start up on bessel from your machine, try typing

`
xon bessel
`

in an xterm window on your machine, and then type

`
math
`

or

`
mathematica
`

in the bessel xterm window that pops up. If you type in a command like

`
Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,7}]
`

and hit RETURN, a graphics window should pop up on your screen at the console of the machine in front of you.
