Abstract

The pattern matcher is at the heart of Mathematica's unique capabilities. This talk will give an overview of how the pattern matcher work, some new related functionality in Mathematica 6.0, and various tips and tricks for how to use the pattern matcher effectively. We will also discuss the relationship between the two major pattern matching paradigms in Mathematica: matching on general expressions and on strings.
