Mathematica at the Physics department

The FU Physics department has a Mathematica site license. You can therefore use Mathematica on any computer at the department and you are also eligible to receive a license for using Mathematica on your home computer or notebook. Depending on your status (student or faculty) and the type of computer (centrally managed or self-administered, networked or offline) installation and activation of the software may differ.

Basically there are two cases:

  • The computer you want to run Mathematica on is not permanently connected to the physics department network (e.g. your computer at home or your notebook). In this case you will need a single-user license.
  • The computer you want to run Mathematica on is permanently connected to the physics department network. In this case you should use a network-license.


The following table lists benchmark results for hosts at the department using Needs["Benchmarking`"]; Benchmark[].
