Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although powerful and very popular in science and engineering, Mathematica can be difficult to learn because of its large command structure and intricate syntax. This book offers a simple, step-by-step approach to help newcomers to Mathematica build the skills needed to use the software in practice. Aimed at professionals with a good mathematics background, this book teaches by example, pointing out potential pitfalls along the way. In an easy-to-use format not found in other books and downloadable code furnished on the Internet, it covers many of the general areas of mathematics, including entering equations, plotting, computing ordinary differential equations, matrices, and linear algebra.

Book News Annotation:

Mathematica has become one of the most powerful and popular computer applications for symbolic computing, numerical computing, and data visualization. Despite its relative popularity, its large command structure and intricate syntax make Mathematica difficult to learn. While there are already comprehensive guides to Mathematica, they are often overwhelming for those trying to learn the program from scratch or find answers to specific questions. This new text offers a simpler approach to help math-savvy newcomers to build the skills needed to effectively and efficiently use the software. The authors stress notebook and file system organization, cross-platform capabilities, and data reading and writing. Includes explanations of common error messages, with recommendations of how to address them.
