Purchase co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund under the Infrastructure and Environment Program


Jagiellonian University has purchased perpetual licenses of the Mathcad program from Parametric Technology Corporation (PTC) for numerical, engineering and symbolic calculations, with a WYSIWYG graphical interface and writing of symbols and formulas using traditional mathematical notation. They include additional specialized modules (toolboxes) in the following areas: signal processing (Signal Processing), image processing (Image Processing), wavelet analysis (Wavelets), and data analysis (Data Analysis).

The licenses purchased by the Jagiellonian University are a multi-user network license (University Edition - 100 Floating): it allows the program to be installed on an unlimited number of computers connected to the university network and to use the program on a maximum of 100 simultaneous workstations (during installation and during operation it is necessary to access a server controlling the number of simultaneous sessions from a computer with an IP address belonging to the UJ network).
License for non-commercial, didactic use.

Two versions of Mathcad are currently available: 15.0 and Prime 5.0.



A commercial computer algebra program (CAS), with computational capabilities similar to Mathematica or Maple.

The hallmark of Mathcad is its ease and intuitiveness of use, with the classic form of writing mathematical expressions using natural algebraic symbols. Even complex calculations and their visualizations can be carried out by the user without programming background, and many operations can be performed with the mouse. The program gives the possibility to compose in WYSIWYG mode active formulas with text, tables, charts and pictures, hide the visibility of elements, etc.

Mathcad, among other things, natively uses and differentiates between upper and lower case letters, superscript and subscript, Greek alphabet, Unicode fonts in expressions. Displays and handles numbers in various formats, including: real, imaginary and complex numbers, vectors and matrices, numbers in decimal, binary, octal and hexadecimal systems, numbers in engineering and scientific notation. Performs operations on denominated quantities (including TrueNumbers) with conversion between measurement systems and dimensional validation.

The program supports data exchange as well as integration with databases, spreadsheets, data acquisition and analysis control packages, and scientific and engineering calculation and simulation systems, including CAD, CAM, CAE, FEM, BIM, GIS, among others.

Users are provided with online access to libraries of technical information and tools in the fields of chemistry, nanotechnology, ceramics, polymers, pharmaceuticals, optics, electronics, biochemistry, biotechnology, environmental, civil engineering and technical support (knowledge base, help system, database of ready-to-use calculation sheets, access to physicochemical, mathematical tables, basic formulas, formulas and constants).

Mathcad is used by more than 90% of Fortune 1000 companies, representing a wide range of industries.

A more detailed description of the program can be found on the producer's website www.ptc.com/product/mathcad or Polish distributor www.mathcad.pl.
