Review from the home page of the Maxima project (maxima.sourceforge.net)
"A book on modeling and simulation exclusively based on open source software. It includes many examples from such diverse fields as biology, ecology, economics, medicine, agricultural, chemical, electrical, mechanical, and process engineering. Requiring only little mathematical prerequisite in calculus and linear algebra, this lucidly written text is accessible to scientists, engineers, and students at the undergraduate level. The book addresses a broad range of models from elementary statistical models to ODE and PDE models. The reader is introduced into CAELinux, Calc, Code-Saturne, Maxima, R, and Salome-Meca."
