Not exactly what you want but still a book for Mathematica 6... http://www.springer.com/west/home/computer/general?SGWID=4-155-22-978... Computer Simulations with Mathematica and Java Wellin, Paul, Gayley, Todd I also mentioned the book some time ago. Note the comments I took... "Annoyingly as usual, Springer has announced a book MANY months before the scheduled date of publication, and there's no guarantee the book will actually appear by that date."
