Overview

In less than 500 pages, Essential C++ for Engineers and Scientists zeros in on the key elements of good programming and C++, using a multitude of interesting and appropriate engineering and scientific examples. This book covers the features of C++ needed for writing engineering programs, including many great features of object-oriented programming. Early on, she makes some simplifying assumptions that allow the use of C++ topics without lengthy explanation, and then later discusses the intricacies of the features. Readers will come away with the confidence needed to solve problems with C++.

Highlights

  • Covers the essential features of C++, including control structures, one-dimensional and multidimensional arrays, and file manipulation.
  • Includes features of object-oriented programming such as class definition and use, derived classes, constructor functions, operator overloading, and automatic conversion.
  • Contains over 80 engineering and scientific examples and programming projects drawn from interesting areas such as solar heating, environmentally sound power production, water conservation, automated manufacturing, and pipeline and power grid modeling.
  • Presents fundamentals of numerical methods that represent commonly used techniques for solving engineering and scientific problems.
