Abstract:

"Ideal for students and newcomers to the field, this guidebook provides a comprehensive reference to key topics in modern mathematics. With an introduction to MATLAB, Mathematica, MapleTM, Maxima, LaTeX, and R, the text explains how to study mathematics, how to write proofs, how to conduct mathematical research, and how to give presentations on mathematics. In addition, the authors detail how to get started with various programming languages, including Beamer, Octave, HTML, PostScript, and open source software. They also discuss how Geometer's sketchpad is a useful tool for drawing illustrations"--Provided by publisher.
