Description

This book shows how to solve physical problems and deal with their underlying physical concepts while using Mathematica to derive numeric and symbolic solutions. The accompanying CD-ROM contains Mathematica programs and notebooks of the entire text, allowing each example and calculation to be evaluated, changed, and adopted to related or similar problems.

The second edition adds new examples and reworks the representation for a more interactive problem-solving presentation. The book can be used as a textbook or a reference book, by students and researchers alike.

Note: This edition completely revises the one-volume first edition and splits it into two volumes, of which this is the second. The first is Mathematica for Theoretical Physics: Classical Mechanics and Nonlinear Dynamics.
