The first edition of Computer Simulations with Mathematica drew on the capabilities of Mathematica to prototype algorithms & to write code in a variety of programming styles, choosing the appropriate style for the problem at hand. Today, running very large simulations in Mathematics is quite feasible, within an order of magnitude of complied C and Fortran code.

Editorial Reviews

The first edition of Computer Simulations with Mathematica drew on the capabilities of Mathematica to prototype algorithms & to write code in a variety of programming styles, choosing the appropriate style for the problem at hand. Today, running very large simulations in Mathematics is quite feasible, within an order of magnitude of complied C and Fortran code. This new edition takes advantage of these features & includes the following significant additions: • Java has become a commonly used tool for working with scientific applications. This book fully incorporates Java programs to run the simulations that are described & implemented in the book. • This is one of the first books to describe & take advantage of Mathematica 6, which contains a fantastic array of new visualization functions & dynamic interactive graphics machinery. • Several websites are maintained with Mathematica notebooks, C source code & compiled C Binaries for various platforms. A minimal background in Mathematica programming is assumed.
