    I have just taught myself how to use Mathmatica.

    The symbolic toolbox is outstanding!

    I have it running mass optimizations for modular rocket stages... something Matlab is (to my knowledge) unable to do symbolically , and crunching the numbers by hand takes at least 5 minutes per stage.

    Now I just need to figure out how to run for and do...while loops as well as filling results into a table and I'll be living large.

    This software ROCKS!

    Mathematica is my favorite CA package as well. The help files are generally good -- look at them for learning how to do loops and list manipulation and so on. Good luck! Let me know if you have any questions.
