Overview

This book covers a broad spectrum of the most important, basic numerical and analytical techniques used in physics —including ordinary and partial differential equations, linear algebra, Fourier transforms, integration and probability. Now language-independent. Features attractive new 3-D graphics. Offers new and significantly revised exercises. Replaces FORTRAN listings with C++, with updated versions of the FORTRAN programs now available on-line. Devotes a third of the book to partial differential equations—e.g., Maxwell's equations, the diffusion equation, the wave equation, etc. This numerical analysis book is designed for the programmer with a physics background.

The striking property about this volume is the extraordinary clarity of the writing. The mystery and confusion of many topics simply dissolves during the author's discourse. The writing is so fluid and clear that it surpasses the prose of many novels. But this would be for naught if the author had not agressively addressed complex issues. There is no simplication here. The author deserves to be lauded for his excellent compilation of homework problems and solutions. They compliment and extend the text wonderfully. These problems reinforce chapter and provide a feedback to verify assimilation of the content.
