Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book presents the fundamental numerical techniques used in engineering, applied mathematics, computer science, and the physical and life sciences in a way that is both interesting and understandable. Using a wide range of examples and problems, this book focuses on the use of MathCAD functions and worksheets to illustrate the methods used when discussing the following concepts: solving linear and nonlinear equations, numerical linear algebra, numerical methods for data interpolation and approximation, numerical differentiation and integration, and numerical techniques for solving differential equations. For professionals in the fields of engineering, mathematics, computer science, and physical or life sciences who want to learn MathCAD functions for all major numerical methods.

Book News Annotation:

A textbook for undergraduate and beginning graduate students in engineering, applied mathematics, computer science, and the physical and life sciences who have completed a calculus sequence that includes differential equations and linear algebra. After a chapter introducing the history of numerical techniques, it explains techniques and applications using the popular software package. Answers are provided for selected problems.
