Hi, for general programming Donald E. Knuth, "The Art of Computer Programming", Volumes 1-3, Third Edition Addison-Wesley for Mathematica first of all: Roman Maeder, "Programming in Mathematica", Third Edition, Addison-Wesley and David B. Wagner, "Power Programming with Mathematica The Kernel" MacGraw-Hill 1996 Hope that helps Jens LHDill wrote: > > 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.
