Elegant Programs in Mathematica | Digital Computing | The Calendar | Searching for Numbers | How Not to Use Mathematica | The n-Queens Problem | The 3x + 1 Problem | The Riemann Zeta Function | The Running Time of TAK | The Condom Problem
Description

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.
