Axiom: The Scientific Computation System
by Richard D. Jenks, Robert S. Sutor
Publisher: axiom-developer.org 2003
Number of pages: 1200
Axiom is a free general purpose computer algebra system. It consists of an interpreter environment, a compiler and a library, which defines a strongly typed, mathematically correct type hierarchy. The primary philosophy is that Axiom needs to develop several fundamental features in order to be useful to the next generation of computational mathematicians. The book gives the reader a technical introduction to AXIOM, interacts with the system's tutorial, accesses algorithms newly developed by the symbolic computation community, and presents advanced programming and problem solving techniques.

Chaos and fractals have revolutionized our view of the world. This book shows examples of the artistic beauty that can arise from very simple equations, and teaches the reader how to produce an endless variety of such patterns.

Using examples from a broad base of computational tasks, including data processing and computational photography, the book introduces numerical modeling and algorithmic design from a practical standpoint and provides insight into theoretical tools.
