The Mathematica GuideBook for Programming

Michael Trott, 2004, Springer-Verlag, 1028 pp., hardcover, includes DVD-ROM

The Mathematica GuideBook for Programming

This book provides a comprehensive, step-by-step development of Mathematica programming capabilities and contains an enormous collection of examples and worked exercises. It guides the reader to become fluent in the structure of Mathematica expressions, expression evaluation, pure and named functions, and in procedural, rule-based, and functional programming constructs. Each Mathematica function is discussed in detail, explained in numerous examples, and put to work in real programs that are all contained on the accompanying DVD.

Unique features:

  • Step-by-step presentation of Mathematica functions assuming no prior Mathematica programming experience
  • Clear organization, complete topic coverage, and an accessible writing style for both novices and experts
  • Detailed discussion of procedural, rule-based, and functional programming
  • Hundreds of worked examples, illustrations, programs, and fully worked self-study exercises for understanding concepts and learning how to solve real-life problems
  • Website for book with additional materials and updates:
  • Accompanying DVD containing all material as an electronic book with complete and executable Mathematica code and programs, rendered color graphics, and animations
