Overview

This book examines the solution of some of the most common problems of numerical computation. By concentrating on one effective algorithm for each basic task, it develops the fundamental theory in a brief, elementary way. There are ample exercises, and codes are provided to reduce the time otherwise required for programming and debugging. Exposes readers to art of numerical computing as well as the science. Readers need only a familiarity with either FORTRAN or C. Applications are taken from a variety of disciplines including engineering, physics, and chemistry.
