Overview

Numerical Methods for Engineers and Scientists, 3rd Edition provides engineers with a more concise treatment of the essential topics of numerical methods while emphasizing MATLAB use. The third edition includes a new chapter, with all new content, on Fourier Transform and a new chapter on Eigenvalues (compiled from existing Second Edition content). The focus is placed on the use of anonymous functions instead of inline functions and the uses of subfunctions and nested functions. This updated edition includes 50% new or updated Homework Problems, updated examples, helping engineers test their understanding and reinforce key concepts.
