Synopses & Reviews
With over a million users around the world, the Mathematica software system created by Stephen Wolfram has defined the direction of technical computing for the past decade. The enhanced text and hypertext processing and state-of-the-art numerical computation features ensure that Mathematica 4 takes scientific computing into the next century. New to this version: visual tour of key features, practical tutorial introduction, full descriptions of 1100 built-in functions, a thousand illustrative examples, easy-to-follow descriptive tables, essays highlighting key concepts, examples of data import and export, award-winning gallery of Mathematica graphics, gallery of mathematical typesetting, dictionary of 700 special characters, a complete guide to the MathLink API, notes on internal implementation, and an index with over 10,000 entries copublished with Wolfram Media.
"...an amazing range of truly useful new features...the finest environment for technical computing and publication ever developed. It's simply the most impressive program I've seen in ten years of reviewing technical software." Macworld online"...the most powerful computer algebra/graphics package...indispensable...This book makes learning the package a pleasure." IEE Review"...a well-structured reference work...the examples are rich, relevant, and well laid out...This work continues to be a very handy, if heavy, guide to Mathematica both for the regular user and for the beginner. Any Mathematica-using organization needs this book on its shelves." Computing Reviews
Indispensable reference manual, from the creator of Mathematica.
This title is a useful reference manual, from the creator of 'Mathematica'.
'Everything about Mathematica and the way it has been developed is impressive ... it is the most comprehensive maths package available today that covers both numeric and symbolic computation. Mathematica 3.0 is simply the new standard of excellence.' Mike James, Scientific Computing World
With the release of the fourth version of Mathematica in 1999, Cambridge is proud to copublish the manual that explains its every feature. The Fourth Edition contains a complete description of how to take advantage of Mathematica's ability to solve everything from algebra and calculus problems to matrices and transformations.
