From the Author
Mathematica for Physics
chooses the canonical problems from the physics curriculum, and solves these problems using Mathematica. This book takes the reader beyond the "textbook" solutions by challenging the student to cross check the results using the wide variety of Mathematica's analytical, numerical, and graphical tools. Throughout the book, the complexity of both the physics and Mathematica is systematically extended to broaden the tools the reader has at his or her disposal, and to broaden the range of problems that can be solved. As such, this text is an appropriate supplement for any of the core advanced undergraduate and graduate physics courses. The electronic supplement contains the initialization files for all chapters, and selected solutions and examples.
From the Back Cover
An appropriate supplement for any undergraduate and graduate course in physics, Mathematica® for Physics uses the power of Mathematica® to visualize and display physics concepts and generate numerical and graphical solutions to physics problems. Throughout the book, the complexity of both physics and Mathematica® is systematically extended to broaden the range of problems that can be solved.
