TELOS Publishes "Programming with Mathematica" Book/Diskette

Santa Clara, California, August 27, 1993 - TELOS (The Electronic Library of
Science) announces the release of "Introduction to Programming with
Mathematica(r)" by Richard J. Gaylord, Samuel N. Kamin, and Paul R. Wellin.

"Introduction to Programming with Mathematica" is the first book published
expressly to teach Mathematica as a programming language to scientists,
engineers, mathematicians, and computer scientists. This text may be used
in a first or second course on programming at the undergraduate level or in
a Mathematica-related course in engineering, mathematics, or the sciences.
It is also intended for individual study by students and professionals. The
text does not assume familiarity with Mathematica nor does it require any
prior programming experience. The book and diskette contain over 200
exercises drawn from many areas of science, engineering, mathematics, and
computer science.

Table of Contents
1. Preliminaries
2. A Brief Overview of Mathematica
3. List Manipulation
4. Functions
5. Evaluation of Expressions
6. Conditional Function Definitions
7. Recursion
8. Iteration
9. Numerics
10. Graphics Programming
11. Contexts and Packages
Bibliography

The Diskette
The 3.5" diskette included with this book can be read by UNIX(r), IBM(r)-
compatible, NeXT(tm), and Macintosh(r) computers. It includes Notebooks and
packages containing the code for all of the examples and exercises in the
text, as well as additional material.

About the Authors
Richard J. Gaylord is a Professor in the Department of Materials Science
and Engineering at the University of Illinois. He has worked on the
theoretical physics of disordered materials and is currently working in the
area of scientific programming. He is on the editorial advisory board of
"The Mathematica Journal" and writes the column "Simulating Experiences:
Excursions in Programming" for "Mathematica in Education."

Samuel N. Kamin is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the
University of Illinois specializing in the study of computer languages. He
is the author of many technical papers on that topic, and wrote the
textbook "Programming Languages: An Interpreter-based Approach".

Paul R. Wellin teaches in the Mathematics Department at Sonoma State
University and specializes in computational mathematics. He is the founder
and editor of "Mathematica in Education," an international quarterly, and
has given dozens of talks and workshops on the use of technology in the
mathematics curriculum around the world.
