Summary

The use of computer algebra systems in science and engineering has grown rapidly as more people realize their potential to solve tedious and extensive mathematical problems. REDUCE for Physicists provides a comprehensive introduction to one of the most widely available and simple to use computer algebra systems, focusing primarily on the needs of physicists. As a means of performing symbolic computation, REDUCE reduces tedious manual algebraic calculations and the dangers of casual errors. Each chapter introduces some aspects of REDUCE and illustrates them with applications from various branches of physics including mechanics, dynamics, dimensional analysis, quantum mechanics, and plasma physics. Emphasizing hands-on work with REDUCE to tackle real physical problems, the book includes exercises to test understanding throughout. Students and researchers in the physical sciences and engineering using REDUCE for the first time will find this book an invaluable aid to learning.
