Nowadays online documents are similar to yesterday's paper, flat, lifeless, inactive. Rather, the Computable Document Format (CDF) puts easy-to-author interactivity at its core, gifting readers to drive content and yield live results. Set up by the Wolfram Group, the CDF standard is a computation-powered knowledge instrumentation, as casual as a document, but equally interactive as an application. Embracing CDF gives ideas a broad pipeline of conveying information, accelerating research, education, technical development, and progress.

<em>Once you Install the CDF Player, you will be able to:</em>

* Interact with applications from the Wolfram Demonstrations Project

*Explore interactive documents in your web browser

*View <em>Mathematica</em> examples, reports, and files <em> </em>

<em>Okay, all that's fine. But why would I use CDF?</em>

Well, the reasons are plenty. To name a few--

Broader communication pipeline: Create content as casual as a document, but as interactive as an app.

Built-in computation: Let the reader drive new discovery—live.

Easy-to-author interactivity: Use automated functions and plain English input instead of specialist programming skills for a wide range of applications.

Deployment flexibilit<em>y</em>: Create once—deploy as slide shows, reports, books, applications, and web objects.

Integrated knowledge: Access specialized algorithms, data, and visualizations for hundreds of subjects.

Not only this, you can also go through various topics ranging from Mathematics to Business and Social Sciences to Creative Arts to Life Sciences and many more.

You can get this app here: Free Download. To know more just go through the demonstration video: Wolfram Demonstration Project. It's time when  <em>Evolution Meets Resolution</em>! Happy Computing! Posted in: #Coffee Room
