Book Description

17 Mar 2000 Mathematical Guides

This book is a gentle and sympathetic introduction to many of the problems of scientific computing, and the wide variety of methods used for their solutions. It is ideal for students taking a first course in numerical mathematics who need a low level entry to the subject. It gives an appreciation of the need for numerical methods for the solution of different types of problem, and discusses basic approaches. For each of the problems, at least some mathematical justification and examples provide both practical evidence and motivations for the reader to follow. Practical justification of the methods is presented through computer examples and exercises. The book also includes an introduction to MATLAB, but the code used is not intended to exemplify sophisticated or robust pieces of software; it is purely illustrative of the methods under discussion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent book. Would buy again. 2 Dec 2013
By Patrick Walmsley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good basic text on scientific computing. Has a few errors. Not ultra descriptive but contains good sample code. I'm a college digital arts and sciences student though (not strait cs/ma), so keep that in mind.

2.0 out of 5 stars So so 24 Aug 2006
By Computer Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a short course of scientific computing. It could be used as starting text but lacks deepness so it is not self consistent. One may consider other books on a topic within the same price range.
