A textbook for sophomores and juniors in engineering, science, mathematics, and computer science, or sourcebook for practicing engineers and scientists who need to use numerical analysis to solve problems. It gives a broad coverage of the field, emphasizing practical applications rather than theory. Among the changes in this edition is the addition of a new chapter that introduces a description of computer algebra systems which offer an alternative to writing a program to solve a problem, and a discussion of parallel processing and how this can be adapted to numerical procedures. Another change is the inclusion of programs in BASIC, Pascal, C, and Ada, in addition to FORTRAN. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc.

Numerical Methods With Matlab : A Resource for Scientists and Engineersby Garold J. Borse, Garold G. Borse Bk&Disk Edition Paperback, 692 pages Amazon.com Price: $71.95 List: $71.95 Published by Pws Pub Co Publication date: January 1997 Dimensions (in inches): 9.50 x 7.61 x 1.23 ISBN: 0534938221 Availability: This item usually shipped within 2-3 days. Synopsis:
This comprehensive book accomplishes two important goals. It teaches the basics of numerical methods by presenting the concepts that students must master in order to continue on to more challenging mathematics and engineering, and it introduces readers to the use of MATLAB software. The book includes a MATLAB tutorial that provides readers with the opportunity for hands-on learning.
