Published Texts

An Introduction to Analysis, Second Edition, with Gerald G. Bilodeau and Paul R. Thie, published by Jones & Bartlett Publishers. The textbook was published today (July 28, 2009, ISBN-13: 9780763774929, 352 pages), just in time for Fall semester adoption!

The J&B website has only a brief table of contents; a more detailed listing, based on our final manuscript submission back in February, is available here.

We have a short errata listing available for the first printing of the text.

Getting Started with Mathematica, Third Edition, with C-K Cheung, Rob Gross, and Charles Landraitis (all of Boston College). Published by John Wiley and Sons, Inc., in March, 2009 (224 + xiv pages, ISBN-13 978-0-470-45687-3). The cover is shown to the left; a click will take you to Amazon.com where you can find more information about the text, including a table of contents (be sure you see the third edition and not the second edition ... we received our publication copies only on March 18).

Copies of the Mathematica notebooks we demonstrated in the text are available for download (131K zipped archive of March 24, 2009).

Getting Started with Maple, Third Edition, with C-K Cheung, Mike May (St. Louis University), and Doug Meade (University of South Carolina). Published by John Wiley and Sons, Inc., in March, 2009 (208 + x pages, ISBN-13 978-0-470-45554-8). The cover is shown to the left; a click will take you to Amazon.com where you can find more information about the text, including a table of contents (be sure you see the third edition and not the second edition ... we received our publication copies only on March 18).

An Introduction to Linear Programming and Game Theory, Third Edition, with Paul R. Thie. Published in July, 2008, by John Wiley and Sons, Inc. (460 + xiv pages, ISBN-13: 978-0-470-23286-6). A click on the bookcover to the left will take you to the Wiley website to learn more about this text.

This work is the result of a collaboration with Paul Thie during my sabbatical during academic year 2007-2008, and this is one project I greatly enjoyed helping to produce.

I've written some software to enhance the usability of the text; and I've linked any click on the image of the text's cover at the right to its entry at Wiley's website. You can also find us as Amazon.com.

We have a short errata listing available for the first printing of the Linear Programming and Game Theory text, last updated on May 29, 2009.

Older Texts/Earlier Editions

Getting Started with Mathematica, Second Edition, was published in 2005 by John Wiley and Sons, Inc. Once again, I've been working with the usual suspects as coauthors: C-K. Cheung, C. K. Landraitis, and R. H. Gross. A picture of the cover is shown at the right.

We've put together a temporary web page with access to notebooks containing our input commands for each of the Chapters at:
