# Details about the *Symbolics* volume

The Mathematica GuideBook for Symbolics (code and text fully tailored with Mathematica 5.1) deals
with Mathematica's symbolic mathematical capabilities. Structural and mathematical operations on
single and systems of polynomials are fundamental to many symbolic calculations and they are covered
in considerable detail. The solution of equations and differential equations, as well as the
classical calculus operations (differentiation, integration, summation, series expansion, limits)
are exhaustively treated. Generalized functions and their uses are discussed. In addition, this
volume discusses and employs the classical orthogonal polynomials and special functions of
mathematical physics. To demonstrate the symbolic mathematics power, a large variety of problems
from mathematics and physics are discussed.
