# Math? Of Course!

Some of you have asked whether you’ll be able to use Wolfram|Alpha for challenging math. Of course!

Remember your old friend pi?

Or the power tower?

Or perhaps you’d like to do a little calculus (note that you can click “Show steps” to see how the answer was obtained):

Or explore number-theoretic sums:

Or obtain eigenvalues (with a beautiful graph):

Or consider the integral representations of `BesselJ` (if you don’t recognize a Bessel function as a friend, you might want to skip this example and look at the others below):

If you’re interested in browsing some examples, in addition to the ones that were highlighted in an earlier blog post, check out Wolfram|Alpha’s Gallery of Visual Examples once the site is live.

For instance, Dini’s surface:

And, from 3D geometry, Archimedean solids:

Of course, Wolfram|Alpha can help you access many kinds of knowledge that require less-visible advanced math to process—for example, checking the odds of a poker hand:

So, as you’re exploring Wolfram|Alpha, you might think about the math you’d like to try there!

Great, a full house probability calculator! Could you guys also make some general pokerprobability calculators, that would be great ;.)
