There are many problems which current user interfaces either do not handle well or do not address at all. The contributions to this volume concentrate on three main areas: interactive books, computer-aided instruction, and visualization. They range from a description of a framework for authoring and browsing mathematical books and of a tool for the direct manipulation of equations and graphs to the presentation of new techniques, such as the use of chains of recurrences for expediting the visualization of mathematical functions.Students, researchers, and developers involved in the design and implementation of scientific software will be able to draw upon the presented research material here to create ever-more powerful and user-friendly applications.
