Introduction to Scientific Computation and Programming - 04 edition

Introduction to Scientific Computation and Programming (ISBN10: 0534389139; ISBN13: 9780534389130)
ISBN13: 978-0534389130
ISBN10: 0534389139

Summary: This book provides students with the modern skills and concepts needed to be able to use the computer expressively in scientific work. The author takes an integrated approach by covering programming, important methods and techniques of scientific computation (graphics, the organization of data, data acquisition, numerical methods, etc.) and the organization of software. Balancing the best of the teach-a-package and teach-a-language approaches, the book teaches genera
l-purpose language skills and concepts, and also takes advantage of existing package-like software so that realistic computations can be performed.

Features
  • Uses MATLAB to illustrate concepts in working examples.
  • Provides examples that range from text processing to the synthesis of false-color images to building user interfaces.
  • Contains short projects of an open-ended nature in the later chapters. Integrating the various kinds of skills needed for scientific computation, the self-contained projects introduce diverse areas of science and technology but require no previous exposure to an area.
  • Covers the basic material on programming in Chapters 1 through 9.
  • Gives the necessary background and provides an introduction to simple but useful graphical interfaces in Chapters 10 and 11.
  • Introduces numerical methods using one dimension in Chapter 16 and extends the concepts and methods to multiple dimensions in Chapter 17.
