Michael, You will probably find few if any engineers using Mathematica. Perhaps some researchers or scientists. I took a Numerical Analysis class at Long Beach State two years ago and we used Mathematica. I even bought the manual. You will find that 90 percent or better of engineering calculations are strictly algebra. What engineers need is a program that replicates the way engineers do hand calcs. That is, a free format for input and an output that shows the "live" formulas so they can be checked by others. Best bet for this type of software is MathCad.

As a result, I'd very much like to know whether you currently use Mathematica, and if not, what kind of software, if any, you use for calculation, analysis, modeling or visualization. I would also be very grateful for any suggestions you might have about Mathematica and its role in the engineering community. Thank you very much for your help. -- Michael Jones (mmjones(--nospam--at)wolfram.com) P.S.
