Logical and Mathematical Methods for the IBM Microcomputers will teach professionals how to best understand and use the mathematical capabilities of the IBM microcomputers. It is the first book to combine both logic programming and mathematical programming concepts within an understandable and useable framework. The book focuses on the 8087 family of coprocessors, including the 8087, 80287, and the 80387 coprocessors. It shows the manipulation of matrix structures in the computerized solution of linear systems, develops combinatorial and brute-force methods for finding heuristic solutions to mathematical problems that defy traditional analytical procedures, and features coverage of the logical foundation of computer simulations and modeling, including the modeling of human intelligence in neural networks. Discussions regarding the use of Boolean Algebra in the design of electronic circuits are also presented. Logical and Mathematical Methods for the IBM Microcomputers is ideal for computer scientists, computer engineers, electrical engineers, mathematicians and other scientists who use the current family of IBM coprocessors in their computers.
