Mastering Mathematica : Programming Methods and Applications by John W. Gray -- excellent discussions on useful aspects of Mathematica, especially how to use the front-end. The whole book was written in Mathematica, by the way and is provided in the attached CD. There are numerous references on programming the front-end. A physicist's Guide To Mathematica by Tam -- Not as programming oriented as POWER PROGRAMMING book, but with many extensively worked out physical examples from mechanics, E&M, Quantum physics. Wagner, POWER PROGRAMMING WITH The MATHEMATICA KERNEL. -- Excellent programmer's discussion of the various structures and general philosophy of the language design including functional and rule-based programming iwen liwen <gzgear at yahoo.com> wrote in message news:<a5htk9$ht1$1 at smc.vnet.net>... > Hi; > I want to buy a book about the programming in Mathematica, which book > is the best?
