Numerical Methods for Engineers – Steven Chapra – 5th Edition

Description

The fifth edition of Numerical with Software and Programming Applications continues its tradition of excellence.
The revision retains the successful pedagogy of the prior editions. Chapra and Canale’s unique approach opens each part of the text with sections called Motivation, Background, and Orientation, preparing the for what is to come in a motivating and engaging manner. Each part closes with an Epilogue containing sections called Trade-Offs, Important Relationships and Formulas, and and Additional References. Much more than a summary, the Epilogue deepens understanding of what has been learned and provides a peek into more advanced methods.

Users will find use of software packages, specifically and Excel with VBA. This includes material on developing MATLAB m-files and VBA macros. Also, many, many more challenging problems are included. The expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in the problems, which now cover such areas as biotechnology and biomedical engineering.
