Computer Algebra, Symbolic Computation

Mathematica, Maple, and similar software packages provide programs that carry out sophisticated mathematical operations. Applying the ideas introduced in Computer Algebra and Symbolic Computation: Elementary Algorithms, this book explores the application of algorithms to such methods as automatic simplification, polynomial decomposition, and polynomial factorization. This book includes complexity analysis of algorithms and other recent developments. It is well-suited for self-study and can be used as the basis for a graduate course. Maintaining the style set by Elementary Algorithms, the author explains mathematical methods as needed while introducing advanced methods to treat complex operations.
