Computer Science Introduction to Wolfram Mathematica
by Ilkka Kokkarinen
Publisher: Ryerson University 2014
Number of pages: 257
This book is an introduction to Wolfram and Mathematica written in computer science spirit, using this language not just for mathematics and equation solving but for all sorts of computer science examples and problems from the standard CS101 exercises all the way up to stuff that would be third or fourth year projects (graphs, logic, AI, learning, recursion).

The book Concrete Abstractions covers the programming and data structures basics. It will give first-time computer science students the opportunity to not only write programs, but to prove theorems and analyze algorithms as well.

Starting from a collection of simple computer experiments -- illustrated in the book by striking computer graphics -- Wolfram shows how their unexpected results force a whole new way of looking at the operation of our universe.

This book teaches you to think like a computer scientist - to combine the best features of mathematics, natural science, and engineering, to use formal languages to denote ideas, to observe the behavior of complex systems, form hypotheses, etc.
