Book News Annotation:

Ascher and Greif (both U. of British Columbia) present a textbook they developed from courses they have taught for over 25 years to computer scientist students. The idea is to present enough basic principles about scientific computing that students can notice if one the standard software packages has produced a result that could not possibley be correct, then to figure out why.

Most of the material can be covered in two semesters, with additional material to provide flexibility or extra assignments for hot shots. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
