Description

This revised and updated book is intended for undergraduates, graduate students, and practicing physicists who want to learn new Mathematica techniques for solving a general class of physics problems. The experimental activities included are designed to deepen and broaden the reader's understanding of physics. The book assumes some familiarity with Mathematica, but the focus is on physics rather than on rudimentary Mathematica techniques.
