Presents common topics in mathematics and shows how they can be elegantly investigated using Mathematica. Includes programs and exercises ranging from the trivial to the challenging. Exercises include the calendar, sequences, n-Queens problems, digital computing, blackjack, and computing pi.
The attached package contains programs designed with efficiency and elegance in mind and so do not just represent Mathematica "hacks". In general, the programs will run in about the same order of efficiency as the fastest programs.
