This page contains links to online educational resources designed for
use with the Mathematica/C version of Introduction to Scientific
Programming by Joseph L. Zachary.
Diskette
The diskette that is included with the textbook includes a Mathematica
notebook for each chapter that contains Mathematica code, the custom
Mathematica library that is exploited in the book, and the complete
implementation of every C program that appears in the book. The
Mathematica material is formatted for both Mathematica 2.2 and
Mathematica 3.0.
You can
Retrieve
a compressed tar file containing the diskette's contents for UNIX. [Extract the files with uncompress -c ISP.Z | tar -xf - ]
Retrieve
a zip file containing the diskette's contents for Windows.
Retrieve
a bin hex zip file containing the diskette's contents for Macintosh.
Browse
the contents of the diskette and retrieve individual components.
Upgraded Mathematica Libraries
We have upgraded the Mathematica libraries contained on the diskette
to support some of the Mathematica notebooks described in the next
section. If you use those notebooks, you will need to obtain new
versions of the libraries. You can

Tutorial Material
A suite of laboratory materials is being developed to accompany the
text, including HTML-based tutorials enhanced with Java applets and
Mathematica notebooks. The tutorials can be used with any
Java-capable Web browser; the notebooks are available for use with
both Mathematica 2.2 and 3.0.
Check this page frequently. During the latter part of 1997 and the
early part of 1998, new laboratory materials will appear regularly.
The entries that appear below without links indicate places where work
on laboratory materials is in progress.
Computational Science
Applet that animates the orbits of Earth and Mars.
Population Density: Computational Properties of Numbers
Notebook that gives a brief introduction to the use of
Mathematica notebooks.
