How to run Mathematica on maya

Introduction

On this page we’ll see how to use Mathematica on the maya cluster. Before proceeding, make sure you’ve read the how to run tutorial first.

Mathematica is a mathematics software package produced by the WOLFRAM corporation.

To run the default version of Mathematica on maya, load the module by entering:

[jongraf1@maya-usr1 ~]$ module load Mathematica

You can then run the program simply by typing Mathematica

[jongraf1@maya-usr1 ~]$ Mathematica

Using Mathematica on the login nodes is possible, but should be avoided. Instead users should consider an interactive session on a compute node.


Example: Interactive Mathematica Session

We can launch a mathematica session and use the program as you would on your personal computer. Note that this should only be done on a compute node, not the user nodes.

[jongraf1@maya-usr1 ~]$ srun -n1 -N1 --partition=batch --time 00:30:00 --mem 5000  --pty --preserve-env $SHELL
[jongraf1@maya-usr1 ~]$ Mathematica
