About this book
Mathematica is a computer program (software) for doing symbolic, numeric and graphical analysis of mathematical problems. In the hands of economists, financial analysts and other professionals in econometrics and the quantitative sector of economic and financial modeling, it can be an invaluable tool for modeling and simulation on a large number of issues and problems, besides easily grinding out numbers, doing statistical estimations and rendering graphical plots and visuals. Mathematica enables these individuals to do all of this in a unified environment. This book's main use is that of an applications handbook. Modeling in Economics and Finance with Mathematica is a compilation of contributed papers prepared by experienced, "hands on" users of the Mathematica program. They come from a broad spectrum of Mathematica devotees in the econometric and financial/investment community on both the professional and academic fronts. Each paper provides a set of tools and examples of Mathematica in action. These tools will also be made accessible to users via a DOS-based floppy disk which will contain Mathematica Notebooks and Packages, and be packaged with the book.
