Edition: 2ND 07
Well, that's no good. Unfortunately, this edition is currently out of stock. Please check back soon.

This second edition increases the universality of the previous edition by providing all its codes in the Java language, whose compiler and development kit are available for free for essentially all operating systems. In addition, the accompanying CD provides many of the same codes in Fortran 95, Fortran 77, and C, for even more universal application, as well as MPI codes for parallel applications. The book also includes new materials on trial-and-error search techniques, IEEE floating point arithmetic, probability and statistics, optimization and tuning in multiple languages, parallel computing with MPI, JAMA the Java matrix library, the solution of simultaneous nonlinear equations, cubic splines, ODE eigenvalue problems, and Java plotting programs.

Computational Science Basics

Errors and Uncertainties in Computations

Visualization Tools

Object-Oriented Programs: Impedance & Batons

Monte Carlo Simulations

Trial & Error Searching, Matrix Computing, Data Fitting

Computing Hardware Basics: Memory and CPU

Parallel Computing and MPI

Integration and Differentiation

Differential Equations Applications

Fourier Analysis; Signals and Filters

Wavelet Analysis and Data Compression

Nonlinear Dynamics and Fractals

Simulating Matter with Molecular Dynamics

PDEs for Electrostatics and Heat Flow

PDE Waves: Strings, Solitons & Quantum Packets

Computational Fluid Dynamics

Integral Equations in Quantum Mechanics

Metropolis Magnets and Feynman Path Integrals

Appendices: Glossary, Installing PtPlot and JDK
