I have packaged the electronic files that came on the original floppy and posted them in a ZIP archive on my web site, at: http://www.verbeia.com/mathematica/PowerProgMa.zip File size is 119 kb. Sorry for the delay. Enjoy!


The printed version of the 2002 edition was printed 3 times and sold out 3 times; Springer and Google recently started selling it (book only) as a PDF eBook (no software) on the Springer and Google sites for $79. I know other authors (e.g. here) have gone to some trouble to make their books available here on stack exchange ... We are delighted to be able ...


Mathematica core programming has not changed much during the years. So, if someone has an interest in learning how to effectively program in Mathematica, older books - even those dating back to version 2.2! - can be of use. Personally, I believe one of the best books in this sense is Thomas B. Bahder Mathematica Programming for Scientists and Engineers ...


Here are two I have found: http://marwww.in2p3.fr/Master2-P3TMA/Programme/MiseAniveau/stock/mathqkref.pdf http://math.msstate.edu/events/reu/reu2010/leftitems/ma-refcard-la.pdf I'm not sure these are great but they are the best I've found. (I take it these are along the lines of what you want, correct?)


As far as I know there's no reference book available yet that is using the new reliability functionality in Mathematica. Two other resources are: Reliability calculations for complex systems, academic thesis Reliability Mathematics, Wolfram Blog Those two focus on RBDs, Fault trees and system structures.


There's such a good video explaining how mathematica functions work using cool animation, i insist on watching this, it will seriously help you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0Y42ExmBoY


You can often figure this kind of thing out by looking at the FullForm of the expressions. In this case: {FullForm[{1 -> 2}], FullForm[{1 \[DirectedEdge] 2}]} shows that the first is a Rule while the second is a DirectedEdge and hence they are not equal. On the other hand, when embedded inside Graph, both sides become Graph[List[1, 2], ...


I found that Schaum's Outline of Mathematica (2nd Edition) to be a great value starter book for just getting your feet wet with working with Mathematica. It's the only book I have actually bought so far and it starts without getting into too much technical detail until later. It covers all the basic parts of the language with lots of practice problems and ...
