Summary
This book is designed for students and researchers who seek practical knowledge of modern techniques in scientific computing. Avoiding encyclopedic and heavily theoretical exposition, the book provides an in-depth treatment of fundamental issues and methods, the reasons behind the success and failure of numerical software, and fresh and easy-to-follow approaches and techniques. The authors focus on current methods, issues, and software while providing a comprehensive theoretical foundation, enabling those who need to apply the techniques to successfully design solutions to nonstandard problems. The book also illustrates algorithms using the programming environment of MATLAB℗®, with the expectation that the reader will gradually become proficient in it while learning the material covered in the book. A variety of exercises are provided within each chapter along with review questions aimed at self-testing. The book takes an algorithmic approach, focusing on techniques that have a high level of applicability to engineering, computer science, and industrial mathematics
