OEIC book integrates knowledge on the field

Symbolic-math computer languages offer symbolic commands that are succinct and extremely powerful, especially for series expansions such as those used for calculations for modeling optical waveguides. I have found these commands easy to use and extremely fast: sometimes they can even yield results that are more accurate than their numerical alternatives. Two symbolic language commands, Map and Replacement, are particularly useful. For convenience in this discussion, I use the symbolism and syntax of Mathematica (from Wolfram Research Inc., Champaign, IL), although I do not suggest that Mathematica is superior to other symbolic languages.
