So far I've abused Mathematica by only using it as a notebook. That's a big waste since I've bought a student-life time Mathematica 9 / SystemModeler license. My problem is that I'm not inspired to use Mathematica in my projects because I've never seen examples of people using Mathematica in their workflow when working on new projects.
There are several tutorials on how to use a particular function, how to solve this kind of mathematical problem and more generally how to program with Mathematica. But that's not what I'm after. I need examples of various real world engineering projects that has been developped from end to end using Mathematica. Examples of workflows, this kind of books. Most of the books are Mathematica references: if you want to calculate this, do it like that, if you want to program this, do it like that, but it's not really inspiring.
This book would have been perfect however I'm not sure it's a good idea to read it since it's quite old (1994) and relies on Mathematica 2. I'm looking for a book having the exact same approach but that uses a more recent version of Mathematica. I enjoy it because it presents several complex real-world engineering projects completed using Mathematica.
Do you know a reference?
