Item description for Physics with MAPLE: The Computer Algebra Resource for Mathematical Methods in Physics (Physics Textbook) by Frank Y. Wang, Laurie Frazier, Emily Ressler, Robin R. Wingo, Sheila Walsh, Marilyn Meberg, Becky Freeman & B. Teissier...
Written by an experienced physicist who is active in applying computer algebra to relativistic astrophysics and education, this is the resource for mathematical methods in physics using MapleTM and MathematicaTM. Through in-depth problems from core courses in the physics curriculum, the author guides students to apply analytical and numerical techniques in mathematical physics, and present the results in interactive graphics. Around 180 simulating exercises are included to facilitate learning by examples.
This book is a must-have for students of physics, electrical and mechanical engineering, materials scientists, lecturers in physics, and university libraries.

Reviews - What do customers think about Physics with MAPLE: The Computer Algebra Resource for Mathematical Methods in Physics (Physics Textbook)?
More than excellent. Dec 26, 2007
This textbook combines Physics with Maple in a very suitable manner. The students will find it very useful as they could learn how to apply computer algebra to Physical problems. It's really an excelnet book.
A superb textbook Oct 2, 2006
The topics covered in this book form a very comprehensive look at the mathematics and types of problems that are encountered across the entire physics discipline. The author has done a nice job showing students how to use Maple for mathematical physics. The animation of several examples is a nice touch which really helps students what is going on with some of these solutions. This is a superb text.
