Need help with your tensor analysis?
MathTensor for Mathematica provides more than 250 new functions and objects
for elementary and advanced tensor analysis.


A Mathematica-based package for performing tensor analysis by computer.

"The creation of MathTensor will open a new chapter in the development of all fields of science and engineering that use serious tensor analysis." - Stephen Wolfram, creator of Mathematica.

"There's not a company on the globe that offers such great customer service. This was actually the thing that convinced me to purchase the software. Customer service along with a great product make this the best software package I've seen. Nobody comes close to you guys." - Peter Salzman, University of California at Davis.

Company History

The development of MathTensor began in the mid-1980's when Leonard Parker, a Professor of Physics at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Steve Christensen, then a Senior Research Scientist at the University of Illinois, independently started developing SMP (a precursor to Mathematica by Stephen Wolfram) tensor analysis systems as well as specialized C programs for doing large gravitational physics computations by computer. After the introduction of early versions of Mathematica, Parker and Christensen began to work together to create a general purpose tensor analysis package that was powerful yet easy-to-learn and use.

In the early 1990's, MathTensor was introduced as a commercial product licensed to MathSolutions, Inc., a Delaware S-Corporation, with offices in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. MathSolutions, Inc. has recently changed its corporate name to MathTensor, Inc.
