In article <7obce9$3t3 at smc.vnet.net>, lhdill at aol.com says... > I'm a Ph.D. chemical engineer who would like to both program efficiently in > Mathematica as well as write efficient programs for scientific and engineering > applications. I am completely self-taught when it comes to programming, and > could benefit from books that describe general programming principles > concerning, e.g., error control and debugging, as well as books specifically > about Mathematica. Check out the books by Maeder -- they are excellent. Also: Press et al.: Numerical Recipes in C (or Fortran or Pascal...), Cambridge University Press. > I have the book "Mathematica for Scientists and Engineers" by Bahder, which is > good but a little dated now since it was written for version 2.2.

They customers I know (biomedical science) always want Excel (believe it or not). > lhdill > > KR, Peter
