Publisher Comments:

Mathematica Cookbook helps you master the application's core principles by walking you through real-world problems. Ideal for browsing, this book includes recipes for working with numerics, data structures, algebraic equations, calculus, and statistics. You'll also venture into exotic territory with recipes for data visualization using 2D and 3D graphic tools, image processing, and music.

Although Mathematica 7 is a highly advanced computational platform, the recipes in this book make it accessible to everyone — whether you're working on high school algebra, simple graphs, PhD-level computation, financial analysis, or advanced engineering models.

  • Learn how to use Mathematica at a higher level with functional programming and pattern matching
  • Delve into the rich library of functions for string and structured text manipulation
  • Learn how to apply the tools to physics and engineering problems
  • Draw on Mathematica's access to physics, chemistry, and biology data
  • Get techniques for solving equations in computational finance
  • Learn how to use Mathematica for sophisticated image processing
  • Process music and audio as musical notes, analog waveforms, or digital sound samples

Book News Annotation:

Recommended for readers with a working knowledge of Mathmatica software, this volume uses a problem/solution/discussion format to walk users through the application's core principles. Mangano, an independent software developer, emphasizes symbolic, functional, and pattern based programming, covering general techniques for all users as well as specific areas of mathematical application. Topics addressed include numerics, string manipulation, graphics, symbolic math, calculus, parallel processing, interfacing, and debugging. Not meant to be read linearly, this resource provides hundreds of programming "recipes" using scripts and code snippets. The book includes a 30 day trial of Mathmatica.

Synopsis:

With support from the developers of Mathematica, this cookbook will offer a wide range of valuable solutions for using this popular computational software application. Developed in 1988, Mathematica is widely used in several fields that rely on mathematical calculation, such as physics, engineering, and finance. This cookbook covers Mathematica 6, the major new release of the software, with recipes from key people in the Mathematica community on three-dimensional imagining, audio processing, calculations from mathematics and physics, and much more.

About the Author

Sal Mangano has been developing software for over 12 years and has worked on many mission-critical applications, especially in the area of financial-trading applications. Unlike many XML/XSLT developers, he did not approach the technology from the standpoint of the Internet and Web development but rather from the broader need for a general-purpose, data-transformation framework. This experience has given him a unique perspective that has influenced many of the recipes in his book, the XSLT Cookbook. Sal has a Master's degree in Computer Science from Polytechnic University.
