The annual workstation license fee is expected to be $99; the first year (through August 31 2004) will be covered by a special stipend from NUIT for faculty and staff.

To exit, type: at the Mathematica prompt To run this batch job in the background, and continue to run after logout, type the following command.
The infile is a text file composed of the necessary Mathematica input commands
and the outfile is the file that is written by Mathematica that contains
the evaluations of each of the input commands It is sometimes useful to
make the first line in the infile NOTE: a standard Mathematica notebook (.nb) that is saved in the interactive mode can not be directly used as an input to batch mode (as opposed to a plain text file with only Mathematica commands described above). To convert an interactive notebook into a valid batch input file, use the following procedure:
math noinit batchinput batchoutput < infile.m > outfile.txt &
