"Good reference works are both hard to write and much needed. This is
especially so in the case of a program like Mathematica, which has over
800 built-in names... Nancy Blachman's accomplishment is impressive. This
small volume packs information about every built-in Mathematica object.
...It highlights new functionality in Version 2.0. ...I can think of
no one better qualified to write this guide. With her experience in
teaching Mathematica classes, providing individual and group training,
and writing "Mathematica: A Practical Approach" (Prentice-Hall, 1992),
she is intimately attuned to the needs of the Mathematica community."
Editor of The Mathematica Journal, 1990-91
The MATHEMATICA QUICK REFERENCE, VERSION 2 is a compact guide to the
latest release of Wolfram Research's best selling mathematical software
package Mathematica, Version 2.0. The MATHEMATICA QUICK REFERENCE is both
a dictionary and a thesaurus of Mathematica commands. It will help you
find the commands you need and use them effectively, and also provides
a readable and compact overview of Mathematica's capabilities.
In addition to describing all functions, it has pointers to other resources:
books, periodicals about Mathematica, user groups, and auxiliary programs.
The MATHEMATICA QUICK REFERENCE is suitable at every level as the ideal
companion to the latest release of Mathematica, Version 2.
