A Physicists Guide to Mathematica(r) teaches students and professional physicists how to master Mathematica using examples and approaches that will appeal to them. Part One gives a practical, physics-oriented, and self-contained introduction to the program. Part Two covers the application of Mathematica to mechanics, electricityand magnetism, and quantum physics.

It has some good sections using problems from physics, but is somewhat dated with mathematica version used in this book. I would recommend a newer version if learning mathematics or mathematica.

A Physicist’s Guide to Mathematica®. Appendix A relates the latest news on Mathematica version . before this book goes to press. Patrick T. Tam. Department of Physics and Astronomy, Humboldt State University, Arcata, California. Appendix B tabulates many of Mathematica’s operator input forms together with the corresponding full forms and examples. Appendix C provides information about the books, journals, conferences, and electronic archives and forums on Mathematica.

This book does not replace Stephen Wolfram’s Mathematica: A System for Doing Mathematics by Computer for Mathematica version 2 or The Mathematica Book for version 3. The encyclopedic nature of these excellent references is formidable, indeed overwhelming, for novices.

For the engineering and scientific professional, A Physicist’s Guide to Mathematica, Second Edition provides an updated reference guide based on the 2007 new 6.0 release, providing an organized and integrated desk reference with step-by-step instructions for the most commonly used features of the software as it applies to research in physics.

For professors teaching physics and other science courses using the Mathematica software, A Physicist’s Guide to Mathematica, Second Edition is the only fully compatible (new software release) Mathematica text that engages students by providing complete topic coverage, new applications, exercises and examples that enable the user to solve a wide range of physics problems.

Does not require prior knowledge of Mathematica or computer programmingCan be used as either a primary or supplemental text for upper-division physics majorsProvides over 450 end-of-section exercises and end-of-chapter problemsServes as a reference suitable for chemists, physical scientists, and engineersCompatible with Mathematica Version 6, a recent major release

The layout of the material is really nice. For each topic, a clear and concise description of the problem is given, then he actually has the real code typed as it will appear in the interface. Usually for something like an integral he will provide the integral in the normal looking way before writing the code below. For the "Problems" sections he has the answers immediately below the question which I find very handy, because it doesn't give away the code you need, just the final answer. Just because it was written when Mathematica 6 was used shouldn't keep you from buying it. Everything works superbly. The quality of the book itself is good, and respectable looking. -A Physics Major about to graduate.

Book is fine, but I missed the fact that it is not the latest edition. My fault.

It has some good sections using problems from physics, but is somewhat dated with mathematica version used in this book. I would recommend a newer version if learning mathematics or mathematica.

This might be a fine book in paper, but it suffers from a problem that occurs in many/most Kindle books with equations. The equations are too small to read and must be double-tapped to read. That, of course, removes the surrounding text so that the mathematics cannot be viewed simultaneously with the text.
Negal
Introduces many ways to use Mathematica which you wouldn't have otherwise discovered. Written is a good self study style, to work at your own pace.
Marelyne
I like the content but really just tosses everything out there almost at random. It is not even until page 100 that 'how to define a function' is covered. The only thing that makes the book Physicist oriented are the examples from time to time that are physics related. Excellent content but just gets too encyclopedic for me. Needs updated for Mathematica 9. Only covers Mathematica 6.

As described
If you need to apply Mathematica to study real physical systems,then i think you can find a lot of useful material in this book.The book begins with the use of Mathematica as an advanced interactive calculator and graphic display ,then elucidates its use as a programming language and finally shows a series of Mathematica packages that deal with specific problems in different physical areas.The author mixes explanations and hints with one to one reproduction of the computer screen inputs and outputs.The exposition is very clear and student-friendly.On the whole a great text!
