An appropriate supplement for any undergraduate or graduate course in physics, Mathematica¨ for Physics uses the power of Mathematica¨ to visualize and display physics concepts and generate numerical and graphical solutions to physics problems. Throughout the book, the complexity of both physics and Mathematica¨ is systematically extended to broaden the range of problems that can be solved.

Mathematica for Physics chooses the canonical problems from the physics curriculum, and solves these problems using Mathematica. This book takes the reader beyond the "textbook" solutions by challenging the student to cross check the results using the wide variety of Mathematica's analytical, numerical, and graphical tools. Throughout the book, the complexity of both the physics and Mathematica is systematically extended to broaden the tools the reader has at his or her disposal, and to broaden the range of problems that can be solved. As such, this text is an appropriate supplement for any of the core advanced undergraduate and graduate physics courses. The electronic supplement contains the initialization files for all chapters, and selected solutions and examples.About the Author:
Fredrick Olness received his B.S. from Duke University (1980), his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin (1982,1985). Continuing his work-across-America tour, he took postdocs at Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago (1985-88) and the University of Oregon in Eugene (1988-91), before joining Southern Methodist University in 1991 where he is now an Associate Professor of Physics. He is spending the 1997-98 academic year on sabbatical with the Theoretical Physics Group at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
His research is in theoretical elementary particle physics phenomenology, at the interface between theory and experiment. Specifically, he studies Quantum Chromodynamics (the fundamental force that binds nuclei) to help answer the questions: What are the fundamental building blocks of nature, and what holds them together?
Fredrick initiated the DOE theory grant at SMU in 1992, was awarded an SSC Fellowship in 1993, and is an active member CTEQ collaboration—a novel collaboration of theorists and experimentalists.
He has written over 50 research articles, served as a moderator for international workshops and conferences, and has been an invited speaker for international conferences and summer schools.
