Mathematica® & Matlab® Codes

The Computational Exploration sidebars in the book feature simple computer analyses to solve problems that would otherwise be inaccessible. Matlab and Mathematica code related to most of the Computational Explorations is provided here for further computation, visualization, and analysis. For a selection of figures and end-of-chapter problems, many algebraic steps were performed or confirmed with a very powerful computational tool known as Mathematica. In addition, we have often used Mathematica to construct figures, such as the vector fields associated with phase portraits.
