Mathematica is freely available to all University-owned machines. On our UMIACS-supported Linux hosts, Mathematica is already available in the following locations:
- RHEL5: /opt/stow/mathematica9/bin/mathematica
- RHEL6/Ubuntu: /opt/common/mathematica9/bin/mathematica
For UMIACS-supported Windows machines, or other self-supported University-owned equipment, please contact staff
There is no automated way to activate Mathematica across our domain. As a result, each computer will have to be registered once against our hosted license server. Any user can go through this process, and it should persist until the host is reinstalled.
