Also from the back cover: “MATHEMATICA is today’s most advanced technical computing system. It features a rich programming environment, two- and three-dimensional graphics capabilities and hundreds of sophisticated, powerful programming and mathematical functions using state-of-the-art algorithms. Combined with a user-friendly interface, and a complete mathematical typesetting system, Mathematica offers an intuitive, easy-to-handle environment of great power and utility.
“… The available types of arithmetic (machine, high-precision, and interval) are introduced, discussed, and put to use. Fundamental numerical operations, such as compiling programs, fast Fourier transforms, minimization, numerical solutions of equations, ordinary/partial differential equations, are analyzed in detail and are applied to a large number of examples in the main text and in the solutions to the exercises.
- Detailed exposition of advantages and disadvantages of machine numbers, significance high-precision numbers, and intervals
- Presents numerous examples of the efficient and optimized use of Mathematica‘s functions for root finding, numerical minimization, numerical integration, and differential equation solving, and examples from mathematics and physics
- Clear organization, complete topic coverage, and accessible exposition for both novices and experts
- Website for book with additional materials and updates …
- Accompanying DVD containing all material in the form of hyperlinked Mathematica notebooks that can be edited and manipulated; striking color graphics and animations are included on the DVD.”
