Barton and Nackman explore using C++ and the object-oriented programming style in scientific and engineering programs. The book emphasizes general concepts, systematic ways of using C++ features, advanced techniques, and particular styles that will help you write object-oriented programs. Examples are drawn from scientific and engineering applications, and the concepts, techniques, and styles are broadly applicable.
The book is organized into three parts. The first part builds a working knowledge of C++. The second part introduces object-oriented programming and design techniques, emphasizing the various ways to express commonality and abstraction. The third part illustrates coordination of advanced C++ features and techniques by developing several interesting examples, including array classes, pointer classes, systems employing abstract algebra, FORTRAN-based matrices, function mapping, and data fitting.

Its a great book on C++ object-oriented design techniques for algorithms and software constructs commonly used in science and engineering. Read morePublished on 19 Aug. 1999
I found this to be a strong overview of C++ for people who already have a strong working knowledge of C and Fortran. Read morePublished on 3 Dec. 1998
