Description

This self-contained introductory guide was written in Mathematica 4 to supplement Advanced Engineering Mathematics, Eighth Edition, by Erwin Kreyszig. The guide presents Mathematica as simply as possible and includes over 130 worked-out examples and about 400 problems for the student to solve. Answers to the odd-numbered problems are included in an appendix to the guide.
