        I looked at Wolfram's website, and saw that the Mathematica computer
program was used in the development of this work. Given my natural cynicism,
and the fact that Mathematica provides most or all of Wolfram's income, I have
to ask: is there an open source version of Mathematica? The concept is
intriging, I have also thought along those lines ( yeah, me too, Eric!), and
while I am willing to pop for US$20-40 on something that interests me, I am NOT
willing to drop what may be several hundred US$ on a whim.
        (I went to Mathematica's website to discover the price of the program,
and found that the price is unavailable without accepting cookies and providing
personal information. Needless to say, Mathematica is not on my wish list.)
