New Books Using Wolfram Technologies
Mathematica and Wolfram|Alpha are powerful technologies for deepening students' and researchers' understanding of complex topics in math and science. These recently published books incorporate engaging Mathematica and Wolfram|Alpha examples and code into texts written for undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers. Composite Materials in Piping Applications: Design, Analysis and Optimization of Subsea and Onshore Pipelines Dimitrios G. Pavlou explains the design, analysis, and performance of composite materials in oil, gas, water, and waste-water piping. The text is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing algorithms for pipe design and analysis using Mathematica. Topology of Digital Images: Visual Pattern Discovery in Proximity Spaces James F. Peters carries forward recent work on visual patterns and structures in digital images and introduces a near set-based topology in this book. To provide a better understanding of digital images, Mathematica scripts are used to illustrate the fabric and essential features of images. Green's Functions in the Theory of Ordinary Differential Equations In this text written for graduate students and researchers interested in the theoretical underpinnings of boundary value problem solutions, Alberto Cabada provides a complete and exhaustive study of Green's functions, including two appendices with Mathematica content.
