Symbolic C++: An Introduction to Computer Algebra Using Object-Oriented
Programming provides a concise introduction to C++ and object-oriented programming, using a step-by-step construction of a new object-oriented designed computer algebra system - Symbolic C++. It shows how object-oriented programming can be used to implement a symbolic algebra system and how this can then be applied to different areas in mathematics and physics.
This second revised edition:-
* Explains the new powerful classes that have been added to Symbolic
* Includes the Standard Template Library.
* Extends the Java section.
* Contains useful classes in scientific computation.
* Contains extended coverage of Maple, Mathematica, Reduce and MuPAD.
