Mathematica?, Maple?, and similar software packages provide programs that carry out sophisticated mathematical operations. In this book the author explores the mathematical methods that form the basis for such programs, in particular the application of algorithms to methods such as algebraic simplification, polynomial decomposition, polynomial greatest common divisor computation, and polynomial factorization. This text: ? is well-suited for self-study and can be used as the basis for an advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate course. ? maintains the style set by Elementary Algorithms (Universities Press 2005). ? introduces advanced methods to treat complex operations. ? presents implementations in such programs as Mathematica?, Maple?, and MuPAD?. ? includes a CD with the complete text, hyperlinks, and algorithms as well as additional reference files. For the student, Mathematical Methods is an essential companion to Elementary Algorithms (Universities Press 2005), illustrating applications of basic ideas. For the professional, Mathematical Methods is a look at new applications of familiar concepts.
