Aims and Scope
Readers are provided with hands-on access to mathematics. They work with numerous interactive Java simulations including examples of infinitesimal calculus, partial differential equations, fractals and much more. In the process, they become acquainted with the technique of simulation. The work also offers a collection of some 2,000 physics simulations. In the electronic version, this unique, comprehensive and well documented collection can be accessed directly from the text and operated online or from the download package installed on a local hard disk. The modern interactive format is an ideal tool to help users visualize and understand mathematics and physics.
