Description
Designed for the junior/senior level of the mathematics and computer science curricula, this book teaches students how to use Mathematica to solve problems in mathematics, computer science, engineering, and other scientific fields in which mathematics and computing skills are essential. The text moves from simple to complex and often follows a specific real-world example on a number of different levels, allowing students to build their confidence and competence. The accompanying CD-ROM contains the entire text of the book as a collection of Mathematica notebooks. Contents
