From the reviews of the second edition:
"The new edition contains a lot of new material and examples ... . It is shown how Mathematica can be used to support (or to replace) many of the usual `by-hand' calculations and to study the results instantaneously by means of graphical representations. In particular, advantage is taken of many special functions and operations ... which are available in Mathematica. The book contains many sample programs, in written form." (M. Plum, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1095 (21), 2006)
