Mathworld Utility Packages
Posted:
Dec 22, 2013 5:50 AM


Hi,
Can someone please direct me to an updated source of Eric Weisstein's Mathworld Utility Packages that allows one to copy and run Mathworld notebooks in a newly set up Mathematica 9 environment (with standard setup configuration chosen).
Online documentation dates back to Mathematica 6 from 2007.
"For a list of Eric's math packages that may be needed to evaluate this notebook, see Mathematica Information Center's MathSource item 4775. A list of Eric's utility packages that may be needed to evaluate this notebook may be downloaded from MathSource item 5087".
http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/MathSource/5087/
http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/MathSource/4775
Point to:
MathWorldPackages.zip (994.8 KB)  Eric Weisstein's MathWorld Packages 20071010 [for Mathematica 6.0]
But unzipping and inserting them per:
"To use these packages in Mathematica, place them in a folder called MathWorld inside your $UserAddOnsDirectory/Applications directory (or any other directory on your $Path)".
Then evaluating:
<<MathWorld`SpecialFunctions`
Gives output:
SetDelayed::write: Tag Gudermannian in MakeBoxes[Gudermannian[z_],TraditionalForm] is Protected. >> SetDelayed::write: Tag Haversine in MakeBoxes[Haversine[z_],TraditionalForm] is Protected. >> SetDelayed::write: Tag InverseGudermannian in MakeBoxes[InverseGudermannian[z_],TraditionalForm] is Protected. >> General::stop: Further output of SetDelayed::write will be suppressed during this calculation. >>
MathWorld`SpecialFunctions` is not loaded.
Yours truly ... Syd Geraghty
