not yet rated|write a review
This introduction to software packages is written specifically for scientists and engineers who write programmes to get numerical results. It covers the whole range of numerical mathematics, from linear equations to ordinary differential equations, with short sections on the calculus of errorand partial differential equations. As it aims to give a unified approach to theory, alogorithms, applications, and the use of software, the emphasis is on examples and applications rather than proofs. This book is appearing at the same time as PAN, software that contains all the programsdescribed in the book, and additional useful software such as help systems, and utility tools as well as an enlarged hypertext version of the text.
