From the PublisherThere are several software packages in wide use that make scientific computation and visualization easier to perform. However, the premise of Farin and Hansford is that without a basic understanding of the mathematics of a problem, the use of these packages could very well give unrecognized erroneous results. … There are numerous examples, and the exercises are designed to stimulate insight into the issues, rather than provide drill and practice. Mathematical Principles for Scientific Computing and Visualization is unique in its approach and written in an informal style … Highly recommended.

… a non-traditional introduction to the math of scientific computation and comes packed with many examples to provide readers with the right tools for using the software packages behind the computations. College-level collections strong in software engineering, science, math or computers will find it an excellent technical pick.
