RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 71006688 LA English T1 Applied numerical methods with MATLAB for engineers and scientists A1 Chapra, Steven C., PB McGraw-Hill Higher Education PP Boston YR 2008 SN 007313290X 9780073132907 9780071259217 007125921X AB Applied Numerical Methods with MATLAB for Engineering and Science is the newest book by best-selling author Steve Chapra. The new text uses MATLAB as the primary computing environment and focuses on applications. Theory is included only when it has direct use to the student; i.e., when theory informs the concepts. Information relating to the limitations of methods and to choosing among different methods is stressed throughout the book. The book includes algorithms, but the algorithms will be presented as MATLAB M-Files, rather than pseudocode. Chapra's familiar instructor- and student-friendly style and pedagogical features are hallmarks of this highly anticipated new text.
