Scientific Computing with MATLAB and Octave – A. Quarteroni – 2nd Edition

Description

This is an introduction to Scientific Computing, in which several for the of certain classes of mathematical problems are illustrated. The authors show how to compute the zeros or the integrals of continuous functions, solve linear , approximate functions by and construct accurate approximations for the solution of ordinary and partial differential equations.

To make the presentation concrete and appealing, the programming environments and Octave are adopted as faithful companions. The contains the solution to several problems posed in exercises and examples, often originating from important . At the end of each chapter, specific section is devoted to subjects which were not addressed in the and contains the bibliographical references for a more comprehensive treatment of the material.
