Mathematica for Theoretical Physics: Electrodynamics, Quantum Mechanics, General Relativity, and Fractals

Mathematica for Theoretical Physics: Electrodynamics, Quantum Mechanics, General Relativity, and Fractals

by Gerd Baumann (Author)

Synopsis

Class-tested textbook that shows readers how to solve physical problems and deal with their underlying theoretical concepts while using Mathematica (R) to derive numeric and symbolic solutions.

Delivers dozens of fully interactive examples for learning and implementation, constants and formulae can readily be altered and adapted for the user's purposes.

New edition offers enlarged two-volume format suitable to courses in mechanics and electrodynamics, while offering dozens of new examples and a more rewarding interactive learning environment.

Media Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

The new edition contains a lot of additional material and new examples, and more emphasis is put on an interactive problem solving. In particular, advantage is taken of many special functions and frequently used operations which are available in Mathematica, in order to demonstrate how Mathematica can be used to replace lengthy `by-hand' calculations and to give graphical support.
