Welcome to these pages conveying optional materials for the 2nd edition. Downloadable below are chiefly the programs used for the computations and graphics of the text.
Mathematica files are given as both .nb and .pdf files. Although the programming code is that of Mathematica, much of it closely resembles that of other languages.
Go here to obtain the free CDF Player application at Wolfram Research, Inc. This app enables direct reading of Mathematica (nb) files, using a browser plug-in if you wish. The slight advantages for Mathematica non-owners are access to cell structure and the ability to resize graphics. The hierarchical cells can be opened/closed by double clicking the rightside brackets.
Each ♦ symbol in the table below represents a file that can be downloaded. Although the table is mainly organized according to the text's Figures, there are computations performed in these files too, depending on what is happening in the book.
