Course Descriptions

Introduction to Mathematica

This session provides a nuts-and-bolts approach that will make it easier to 
learn and use Mathematica, bringing together ideas and techniques that are 
scattered throughout the literature. You will learn how to find commands that 
you need, understand what they do, and use them effectively.  You will learn 
to use Mathematica to manipulate expressions, find roots, solve differential 
equations, and visualize functions and data.  

Introduction to Programming in Mathematica and Additional Programming Topics

This session will help you get started programming in Mathematica. We start by 
showing you how to write functions.  You will learn about different types of 
assignment statements as well as patterns you can use to specify arguments to 
functions. Because the pattern matching capabilities in Mathematica are
powerful and can often simplify programs, we show examples of functions 
expressions that pattern-matching.  We then cover importing, exporting, 
and formatting data and expressions and conclude by describing the mechanisms
used in Mathematica packages and explaining how to use them effectively.  
After this course you should be able to read and write data from ASCII 
files and write your own Mathematica package.

About the Instructor

Nancy Blachman is founder and president of Variable Symbols, a company that 
specializes in helping people  mathematical software more effectively.  She 
is an instructor at Stanford University, where she teaching a class in problem 
solving with Mathematica.  Ms. Blachman has been an invited speaker at the 
last three Mathematica conferences.  She holds degrees in mathematics, 
operations research and computer science from the University of Birmingham 
(U.K.), the University of California at Berkeley, and Stanford University.

Training Materials

Each participant will receive a copy of Nancy Blachman's book "Mathematica: 
A Practical Approach" (Prentice-Hall, 1992), and the "Mathematica Quick 
Reference, Version 2" (Addison-Wesley and Variable Symbols, 1992).

Cost

Cost of attending either 1-day session in $250.
Cost of attending the entire 2-day Workshop is $400.

Save 10% if you register 30 days in advance.
