Description

This book has been conceived as an easy-to-read guide for Mathematica users at any level (from beginners to professionals). It starts from a general overview about Mathematica and its basic elements, going throughout some important features--e.g. expression and their manipulation, to arrive to several example explaining pattern matching and other important techniques enabling users to exploit the power of Mathematica. A chapter describing basic fetures of the Mathematica front end is also included, to show how it is possible to customize documents and produce high-quality scientific documents and application.
