Computational Geosciences with Mathematica is the only book written by a geologist specifically to show geologists and geoscientists how to use Mathematica to formulate and solve problems. Its topics span a broad range of geologic and mathematical topics, which are drawn from the author's extensive experience in research, consulting, and teaching. The reference and text leads readers step-by-step through geologic applications such as custom graphics programming, data input and output, linear and differential equations, linear and nonlinear regression, Monte Carlo simulation, time series and image analysis, and the visualization and analysis of geologic surfaces. It is packed with actual Mathematica ouput and includes boxed Computer Notes with tips and exploration suggestions. The accompanying CD-ROM contains notebooks of all text and graphics, plus an appendix on color graphics and specialized functions.
From the reviews: "Nearly every chapter of this book is built up around numerous examples of quantitative geological problem solving. Worked out problems include examples from geology, geomorphology, hydrology, geophysics and other geoscientific disciplines. Therefore, this book has, to my opinion, a large possible audience. Next to persons interested in using Mathematica, this book is useful to any geologist interested in some more information on quantitative geology. ! it should be accessible to motivated students and senior geologists interested or involved in mathematical geology."
