New for Version 12: a substantial update from the second edition, including three new chapters, code and product updates in virtually every chapter. New chapters include "Wolfram|Alpha-Mode Notebooks," "Machine Learning and Neural Networks" and "Image Processing." Updated index.
Japanese, Chinese and Korean language editions are also available. "This book is a much-needed complement to existing support material for Mathematica in particular, and Wolfram technologies in general. It puts to rest, once and for all, the frequently heard claim that Mathematica is difficult and not accessible to the school and college levels of our computational universe." —FRED SZABO at Concordia University in Montreal, author of Actuaries' Survival Guide
"Mathematica has had a transformative effect on my teaching and on student learning in all of my classes, from my lowest-level high-school honors chemistry classes to my most advanced classes in computational chemistry, computational medicinal chemistry and scientific programming." —ROBERT GOTWALS at North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics
For more than 30 years, Mathematica has been the principal computation environment for millions of innovators, educators, students and others around the world. This book is an introduction and provides a hands-on experience introducing the breadth of Mathematica and the Wolfram Language, with a focus on ease of use.
In the years since its original publication in 2015, Hands-on Start to Wolfram Mathematica has been translated into Chinese, Japanese and Korean to reach a wider audience. The book and its video series are the cornerstone of learning for individuals, courses and organizations' first use of Mathematica.
You can access companion material to this book, including video classes and live training tutorials, online.
