Several people have asked me about workshops I will be giving in
the near future. Here is information about a couple of workshops
I will be teaching this summer.
Day 1: Introduction to Mathematica
Day 2: Introduction to Programming in Mathematica
Day 3: Additional Programming Topics
Location and Date
Washington, D.C. June 13-15, 1994
Boston, MA August 15-17, 1994
Introduction to Mathematica
This workshop 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. This course will be a useful
refresher for casual users as well as those who are more experienced.
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. By the end of the course, you'll be ready to go
on to programming
Introduction to Programming in Mathematica
This course will help you get started programming in Mathematica. We show
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.
Additional Programming Topics
Because the pattern matching capabilities in Mathematica are powerful
and can often simplify programs, this course starts by showing examples
of functions and expressions that use 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 author of "Mathematica: A Practical Approach"
(Prentice-Hall, 1992), the best selling tutorial book on Mathematica.
She is also the author of the "Mathematica Quick Reference, Version 2"
(Addison-Wesley, 1992) and the co-author of the "Mathematica Graphics
Guidebook" (Addison-Wesley, forthcoming). Nancy has been teaching a
course in problem solving with Mathematica at Stanford University for
the past five years. 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.
