Description
Systems of computer mathematics find more and more broad application in a number of natural, economical and social fields. These systems are rather important tools for scientists, teachers, researchers and engineers, very well combining symbolical methods with advanced computing methods. One of leaders among tools of this class undoubtedly is the Mathematica. The book focuses on an important aspect – procedural and functional programming supported by Mathematica. This aspect is of particular importance not only for appendices but also above all it is quite important in the creation of the user tools that extend the most frequently used standard tools of the system and/or eliminate its shortcomings, or complement with the new facilities. Software represented in the book contains a number of useful and effective receptions of procedural and functional programming in the Mathematica system that extend the system software and allow sometimes much more efficiently and easily to program the program objects for various purposes first of all wearing system character. Among them there are means which are of interest from the point of view of including of their or their analogs into standard means of Mathematica, at the same time they use approaches, useful in programming of applications in Mathematica. The above software rather essentially dilates the Mathematica functionality and can be useful enough for programming of many problems above all of system character. At the same time, the MathToolBox package containing more 930 tools of various purpose with freeware license is attached to the book. The given book is oriented on a wide enough circle of the users of computer mathematics systems, researchers, teachers and students of universities for courses of computer science, mathematics, physics and many other natural disciplines. The book will be of interest also to the specialists of the industry and technology that use the computer mathematics systems in professional activity. At last, this book is a rather useful handbook with fruitful methods on the procedural and functional programming in the Mathematica system. Related Topics Tutorial and Reference
