More copies of this ISBNNumerical Recipes in Fortran 2ND Editionby William H Press
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This is the greatly revised and greatly expanded Second Edition of the hugely popular Numerical Recipes: The Art of Scientific Computing. The product of a unique collaboration among four leading scientists in academic research and industry Numerical Recipes is a complete text and reference book on scientific computing. In a selfcontained manner it proceeds from mathematical and theoretical considerations to actual practical computer routines. With over 100 new routines bringing the total to well over 300, plus upgraded versions of the original routines, this new edition remains the most practical, comprehensive handbook of scientific computing available today. Highlights of the new material include: A new chapter on integral equations and inverse methods Multigrid and other methods for solving partial differential equations Improved random number routines  Wavelet transforms The statistical bootstrap method A new chapter on "lessnumerical" algorithms including compression coding and arbitrary precision arithmetic. The book retains the informal easytoread style that made the first edition so popular, while introducing some more advanced topics. It is an ideal textbook for scientists and engineers and an indispensable reference for anyone who works in scientific computing. The Second Edition is availabe in FORTRAN, the traditional language for numerical calculations and in the increasingly popular C language.
Synopsis:This is the revised and greatly expanded Second Edition of the hugely popular Numerical Recipes: The Art of Scientific Computing. The product of a unique collaboration among four leading scientists in academic research and industry, Numerical Recipes is a complete text and reference book on scientific computing. In a selfcontained manner it proceeds from mathematical and theoretical considerations to actual practical computer routines. With over 100 new routines (now well over 300 in all), plus upgraded versions of many of the original routines, this book is more than ever the most practical, comprehensive handbook of scientific computing available today. The book retains the informal, easytoread style that made the first edition so popular, with many new topics presented at the same accessible level. In addition, some sections of more advanced material have been introduced, set off in small type from the main body of the text. Numerical Recipes is an ideal textbook for scientists and engineers and an indispensable reference for anyone who works in scientific computing. Highlights of the new material include a new chapter on integral equations and inverse methods; multigrid methods for solving partial differential equations; improved random number routines; wavelet transforms; the statistical bootstrap method; a new chapter on "lessnumerical" algorithms including compression coding and arbitrary precision arithmetic; band diagonal linear systems; linear algebra on sparse matrices; Cholesky and QR decomposition; calculation of numerical derivatives; Pade approximants, and rational Chebyshev approximation; new special functions; Monte Carlo integration in highdimensional spaces; globally convergent methods for sets of nonlinear equations; an expanded chapter on fast Fourier methods; spectral analysis on unevenly sampled data; SavitzkyGolay smoothing filters; and twodimensional KolmogorovSmirnoff tests. All this is in addition to material on such basic topics as: linear equations, interpolation and extrapolation, integration, nonlinear rootfinding, eigensystems, ordinary differential equations, evaluation of functions, sorting, optimization, statistical description and modeling of data, and twopoint boundary value problems.

Synopsis:This book aims to teach the methods of numerical computing, and as such it is a practical reference and textbook for anyone using numerical analysis. The authors provide the techniques and computer programs needed for analysis and also advice on which techniques should be used for solving certain types of problems. The authors assume the reader is mathematically literate and is familiar with FORTRAN and PASCAL programming languages, but no prior experience with numerical analysis or numerical methods is assumed. The book includes all the standard topics of numerical analysis (linear equations, interpolation and extrapolation, integration, nonlinear rootfinding, eigensystems and ordinary differential equations). The programs in the book are in ANSIstandard FORTRAN77 for the main text, and are repeated in UCSDPASCAL at the end. They are available on discs for use on IBMPC microcomputers and their compatibles. A workbook providing sample programs that illustrate the use of each subroutine and procedure is available, as well as discs giving programs listed in the book in USCDPASCAL and FORTRAN77 for use on IBMPC microcomputers and their compatibles.
