So far, the text is well presented, each concept is adequately introduced and developed. There are no mystery operators that are introduced without explanation or definition. However, despite the 'With Applications in Mathematica' in the title, there really is no Mathematica code to speak of provided with this text. Since there is no CD or webpage from which to get this code it's kind of a good thing. You and i will just have to type everything in by hand. The examples and code occupy only 32 pages in an appendix. It has been my pleasure to learn new material and methods using books that allow more interaction by having Mathematica code, providing that code and allowing the student to learn and explore the methods with their own problems. But that path is only available with a great deal of inconvenience with this book. Also, i just noticed that the binding is failing on the (new) book i received. Oh well!Was this review helpful?
