Since its first release in 1988, Mathematica has sold over a quarter of a million copies throughout the world, enabling the manipulation of fields of mathematics such as numerics, symbolic algebra, and graphics. This step-by-step guide deals solely with generating computer graphics using the Mathematica software. It is written by an expert in the field, himself an employee of Wolfram Research, Inc., the creators and distributors of the software. Dr. Wickham-Jones is directly involved in all the technical issues and programs relating to the graphics side of the Mathematica package, and is therefore an obvious choice as author of such a publication.

This comprehensive, detailed reference provides readers with both a working knowledge of Mathematica in general and a detailed knowledge of the key aspects needed to create the fastest, shortest, and most elegant implementations possible. It gives users a deeper understanding of Mathematica by instructive implementations, explanations, and examples from a range of disciplines at varying levels of complexity. The three volumes - Programming, Graphics, and Mathematics - each with a CD, total 3,000 pages and contain more than 15,000 Mathematica inputs, over 1,500 graphics, 4,000+ references, and more than 500 exercises. This second volume covers 2 and 3D graphics, providing a detailed treatment of creating images from graphic primitives such as points, lines, and polygons. It also shows how to graphically display functions that are given either analytically or in discrete form and a number of images from the Mathamatica graphics gallery. The use of Mathematicas graphics capabilities provides a very efficient and instructive way to learn how to deal with the structures arising in solving complicated problems.

This book is to be considered a flexible guideline on how to learn and teach Mathematica graphic commands. For instance the class practices and the homework assignments are to be altered, adjusting to the students’ interest. The exam files are samples, and need to be altered accordingly. The book represents how the course was taught by the author; individuals adapting the book have the total freedom to modify and reorganize its contents.

It is envisioned and practiced to present each chapter within 60% of a lecture period. The accompanied CD makes this feasible. The remaining 40% of the lecture period is to be spent on the set of in-class, lecture related practice problems. In different settings, and depending on the students’ potential, the suggested percentages can be adjusted.The book also includes two exam questionnaires. Solutions to the in-class practice problems and the exams all are included.The in-class practice problems and the exams may easily be altered to meet the needs and the interests of the students.In short, the book is a complete and flexible package that guides an instructor to assist the students to apply the Mathematica graphics in a broad range of technical courses.

In this book we generate graphic images using the software Mathematica thus providing a gentle and enjoyable introduction to this rather technical software and its graphic capabilities. The programs we use for generating these graphics are easily adaptable to many variations. These graphic images are enhanced by introducing a variety of different coloring techniques. Detailed instructions are given for the construction of some interesting 2D and 3D fractals using iterated functions systems as well as the construction of many different types of Julia sets and parameter sets such as the Mandelbrot set. The mathematics underlying the theory of Iterated function systems and Julia sets is given an intuitive explanation, and references are provided for more detailed study. · Brilliant Graphic images · Interesting Introduction to Mathematica for Beginners · Easy constructions · A variety of Coloring Techniques · Programs Easily Adaptable to Many Variations · Constructions useful for Dynamics and Fractals Courses

Mathematica has defined the state of the art in technical computing for nearly a decade, and has become a standard in many of the world's leading companies and universities. From simple calculator operations to large-scale programming and interactive document preparation, Mathematica is the tool of choice at the frontiers of scientific research, in engineering analysis and modeling, in technical education from high school to graduate school, and wherever quantitative methods are used.

In the history of mathematics there are many situations in which cal- lations were performed incorrectly for important practical applications. Let us look at some examples, the history of computing the number ? began in Egypt and Babylon about 2000 years BC, since then many mathematicians have calculated ? (e. g. , Archimedes, Ptolemy, Vi` ete, etc. ). The ?rst formula for computing decimal digits of ? was disc- ered by J. Machin (in 1706), who was the ?rst to correctly compute 100 digits of ?. Then many people used his method, e. g. , W. Shanks calculated ? with 707 digits (within 15 years), although due to mistakes only the ?rst 527 were correct. For the next examples, we can mention the history of computing the ?ne-structure constant ? (that was ?rst discovered by A. Sommerfeld), and the mathematical tables, exact - lutions, and formulas, published in many mathematical textbooks, were not veri?ed rigorously [25]. These errors could have a large e?ect on results obtained by engineers. But sometimes, the solution of such problems required such techn- ogy that was not available at that time. In modern mathematics there exist computers that can perform various mathematical operations for which humans are incapable. Therefore the computers can be used to verify the results obtained by humans, to discovery new results, to - provetheresultsthatahumancanobtainwithoutanytechnology. With respectto our example of computing?, we can mention that recently (in 2002) Y. Kanada, Y. Ushiro, H. Kuroda, and M.

Computing with Mathematica, Second Edition is engaging and interactive. It is designed to teach readers how to use Mathematica efficiently for solving problems arising in fields such as mathematics, computer science, physics, and engineering. The text moves from simple to complex, often following a specific example on a number of different levels. This gradual increase in complexity allows readers to steadily build their competence without being overwhelmed. The Second Edition of this acclaimed book features: Substantive real world examples Challenging exercises, moving from simple to complex A collection of interactive projects from a variety of applications "I really think this is an almost perfect text." -Stephen Brick, University of South Alabama Substantive real world examples Challenging exercises, moving from simple to complex examples
