Mathematica for Theoretical Physics:

Classical Mechanics and Nonlinear Dynamics

This moment version of Baumann's Mathematica(r) in Theoretical Physics indicates readers tips on how to clear up actual difficulties and take care of their underlying theoretical recommendations whereas utilizing Mathematica(r) to derive numeric and symbolic recommendations. each one instance and calculation might be evaluated through the reader, and the reader can switch the instance calculations and undertake the given code to comparable or related difficulties.

The moment version has been thoroughly revised and multiplied into volumes:

The first quantity covers classical mechanics and nonlinear dynamics. either issues are the foundation of a standard mechanics direction. the second one quantity covers electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, relativity, and fractals and fractional calculus.

New examples were extra and the illustration has been remodeled to supply a extra interactive problem-solving presentation. This publication can be utilized as a textbook or as a reference paintings, by way of scholars and researchers alike. a short thesaurus of phrases and features is inside the appendices.

The CD-ROM accompanying all the volumes comprises Mathematica(r)

notebooks in addition to Mathematica(r) courses. The notebooks comprise the whole textual content of the corresponding quantity and will interface with Mathematica(r). The examples given within the textual content is also interactively used and adjusted for the reader's purposes.

The writer, Gerd Baumann, is affiliated with the Mathematical Physics department of the college of Ulm, Germany, the place he's professor. he's the writer of Symmetry research of Differential Equations with Mathematica(r). Dr. Baumann has given quite a few invited talks at universities and alike. He usually hosts seminars and lectures on symbolic computing on the college of Ulm and at TECHNISCHE UNIVERSIT?T M?NCHEN (TUM), Munich.
