This book provides a comprehensive discussion of numerical computing techniques with an emphasis on practical applications in the fields of civil, chemical, electrical, and mechanical engineering. It features two software libraries that implement the algorithms developed in the text - a MATLAB© toolbox, and an ANSI C library. This book is written in an engaging, informal style that is accessible to all readers. Each chapter includes detailed case study examples from the four engineering fields with complete solutions provided in both MATLAB© and C; detailed objectives, numerous worked-out examples and illustrations, and summaries comparing the numerical techniques. Chapter problems are divided into separate analysis and computation sections. Documentation for the software is provided in text appendices that also include a helpful review of vectors and matrices. The Instructor's Manual includes a disk with software documentation and complete solutions to both problems and examples in the book.

- Comprehensive coverage of topics, including chapters on optimization (Chapter 6) and digital signal processing (Chapter 10).
- Two complete software libraries with source code and built-in documentation that implement the algorithms developed in the text. A GUI-driven MATLAB toolbox and a comprehensive ANSI C library are provided on an accompanying CD-ROM bound into the text.
- 38 detailed case studies apply techniques to problems in civil, mechanical, chemical and electrical engineering, with solutions in both MATLAB and C.
- Clear, engaging writing style with motivational problems at the start of each chapter, and numerous worked-out examples and illustrations.
- Detailed objectives and summaries for each chapter.
