A visual, interdisciplinary approach to solving problems innumerical methods
Computing for Numerical Methods Using Visual C++ fills the needfor a complete, authoritative book on the visual solutions toproblems in numerical methods using C++. In an age of boundlessresearch, there is a need for a programming language that cansuccessfully bridge the communication gap between a problem and itscomputing elements through the use of visual-ization for engineersand members of varying disciplines, such as biologists, medicaldoctors, mathematicians, economists, and politicians. This booktakes an interdisciplinary approach to the subject and demonstrateshow solving problems in numerical methods using C++ is dominant andpractical for implementation due to its flexible language format,object-oriented methodology, and support for high numericalprecisions.
In an accessible, easy-to-follow style, the authors cover:
Numerical modeling using C++
Fundamental mathematical tools
Systems of linear equations
Interpolation and approximation
Differentiation and integration
Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors
Ordinary differential equations
Partial differential equations
This reader-friendly book includes a companion Web site, givingreaders free access to all of the codes discussed in the book aswell as an equation parser called "MyParser" that can be used todevelop various numerical applications on Windows. Computing forNumerical Methods Using Visual C++ serves as an excellent referencefor students in upper undergraduate- and graduate-level courses inengineering, science, and mathematics. It is also an ideal resourcefor practitioners using Microsoft Visual C++.
