This book presents numerical analysis to advanced undergraduate and master degree level grad students in one semester using the programming language is Mathematica. The mathematical foundation and technique is included with emphasis geared toward the two major developing areas of applied mathematics: mathematical finance and mathematical biology.
* Develops the topic with Mathematica. Beginning students in numerical analysis need a textbook that uses the programming language they will be using. Many universities use the programming language but few if any textbooks use it
* Includes much biologically based material, examples and exercises. Mathematical biology is currently the hottest area in Math
* Includes Monte Carlo method, FDM and numerical ODE methods. Hence suitable for a numerical analysis course in a Financial Math program, another hot topic for mathematics
* In one semester, it prepares students to take graduate level numerical analysis classes
