This introduction to nonlinear physics is designed around Maple's ability to perform symbolic computations, plot, animate, and permit readers to investigate nonlinear models

This introduction to nonlinear physics is designed around Maple's ability to perform symbolic computations, plot, animate, and permit readers to investigate nonlinear models. The primary focus is the problem of dealing with physical phenomena described by nonlinear ordinary or partial differential equations.

An introduction to the usage of Maple is provided by the authors in the book. The book contains about 400 problems for the student and instructor.

In this text extensive use is made of the Mathematica computer algebra system. No prior knowledge of Mathematica or programming is assumed. This book includes 33 experimental activities that are designed to deepen and broaden the reader's understanding of nonlinear physics. These activities are correlated with Part I, the theoretical framework of the text.

This introduction to nonlinear physics is designed around Maple's ability to perform symbolic computations, plot, animate, and permit readers to investigate nonlinear models. The primary focus is the problem of dealing with physical phenomena described by nonlinear ordinary or partial differential equations. Previously published in two volumes, this new edition has been combined into one comprehensive volume, including a disk containing Maple code. Along with expansions of the theoretical part, this second edition also features many new and improved examples, Maple experiments and files, and all Maple code has been updated to Release 5.

I actually had the honor of having George McGuire, one of the authors of this book as my professor for a course in Nonlinear Physics.

This book was quite solid overall. Sometimes the questions asked go far beyond the methodology and theory taught. (Typically these were questions he'd ask to make sure no one got an A+. ) It also is hard to tell sometimes if you've gotten the right answer, as there are no answers in the back of the book.

In certain sections the theoretical derivations were a bit limited. Otherwise it was quite good. The labs in the textbook also are great for showing nonlinear behavior and make for interesting ideas for future research.

I should add this book isn't hard to use (at all)to teach yourself. George's methodology for this course was very hands off, mainly we (the students) worked on the problems in class and would ask him for help. He maybe did 3-5 actual lectures the whole semester.

Nice book for professionals and first-year students. Nice graphics (via Maple). Good introduction to advanced non-linear applications - students should be able to find lots of interesting areas to explore. (be first!)
