Review quote

Stephen McDowall of Western Washington University says:
" The topics covered are extensive. The order and organization are good, especially in terms of
increasing sophistication of the mathematics involved and in the complexity of the Mathematica
programming necessary"
March 2003
Mark Lusk of The Colorado School of Mines says:
" I am considering the adoption of this book for my graduate class in Simulation and Modeling. I
make very heavy use of Mathematica and have a weekly computer lab. I am tempted to make this
the sole, required text for that course"
