Numerical Methods Engineering with MATLAB – Kiusalaas – 2nd Edition


in Engineering with MATLAB® is a text for engineering and a reference for practicing . The choice of was based on their relevance to engineering . Every method is discussed thoroughly and illustrated with involving both hand computation and programming. MATLAB M-files accompany each method and are available on the website.

This code is made simple and easy to understand by avoiding book-keeping schemes, while maintaining the essential features of the method. MATLAB was chosen as the example language because of its ubiquitous use in engineering studies and .

This new edition includes the new MATLAB anonymous functions, which allow the programmer to embed functions into the program rather than storing them as separate files. Other changes include the addition of rational function interpolation in Chapter 3, the addition of Ridder’s method in place of Brent’s method in Chapter 4, and the addition of downhill simplex method in place of the Fletcher-Reeves method of optimization in Chapter 10.
