A Crash Course in Mathematica by Stephan Kaufmann

By Stephan Kaufmann

This compact advent to Mathematicaaccessible to newcomers in any respect levelspresents the fundamental parts of the newest model three (front §End.txt.Int.:, kernel, typical packages). utilizing examples and workouts now not particular to a systematic sector, it teaches readers find out how to successfully clear up difficulties of their personal box. The cross-platform CD-ROM includes the whole booklet within the kind of Mathematica notebooks, together with colour photographs, animations, and links, plus this system MathReader.

Linear Models: Least Squares and Alternatives

Presents a present account of the speculation and purposes of linear types. offers a unified conception of inference from linear versions with minimum assumptions via least squares concept, and utilizing replacement equipment of estimation and trying out in line with convex loss features and normal estimating equations.

Algorithms for Computer Algebra

Algorithms for laptop Algebra is the 1st entire textbook to be released regarding computational symbolic arithmetic. The publication first develops the foundational fabric from smooth algebra that's required for next issues. It then provides a radical improvement of recent computational algorithms for such difficulties as multivariate polynomial mathematics and maximum universal divisor calculations, factorization of multivariate polynomials, symbolic resolution of linear and polynomial platforms of equations, and analytic integration of user-friendly services.

R for SAS and SPSS Users (Statistics and Computing)

R is a strong and loose software program process for info research and portraits, with over 5,000 add-on programs on hand. This ebook introduces R utilizing SAS and SPSS phrases with that you are already commonly used. It demonstrates which of the add-on programs are so much like SAS and SPSS and compares them to R's integrated capabilities.

The Mathematica Book, Fifth Edition

As either a hugely readable instructional and a definitive reference for over 1000000 Mathematica clients world wide, this e-book covers each element of Mathematica. it's a vital source for all clients of Mathematica from novices to specialists. This accelerated 5th version provides Mathematica model five for the 1st time and is necessary for a person attracted to the growth of complicated computing.

Example text

A -> Power: : infy: Out[113)= 0 Infinite expression 1 encountered. o {x --,) ComplexInfinity} We see here, that the function Solve does not take special cases into consideration. Technically speaking, it only delivers a generic solution. The Reduce function helps us further. It creates a logical expression containing all special cases. In[114):= Out[114)= Reduce[ax==b, x] b == 0 && a == The logical or is written 0 I I a"* 0 && x == ab I I, the logical and as &&, and unequal as *" or ! = . 58 Part 1 • Inequalities The Inequal i tySol ve function is defined in the Algebra' Inequal i tySol ve' package.

In[78):= Out[78)= In[79):= Out[79)= myExpandl [a] 1 + 2 a + a2 myExpand2 [a] 1 + 2 a + a2 But if we evaluate them for a sum, this sum is simply substituted for x in the first version. In[80):= Out[80)= myExpandl [a + b] 1 + 2 (a + b) + (a + b) 2 On the other hand, with a delayed definition the sum is substituted and the Expand of the resulting expression is then calculated. In[81):= Out[81)= myExpand2 [a + b] 1 + 2 a + a2 + 2 b + 2 a b + b 2 • Rules of Thumb for Definitions We can keep to the rule of thumb that immediate definitions serve as shortcuts for fixed values of symbols or patterns.

Clicking the button on the palette automatically applies the function to the selection in the notebook, evaluating "on location".
