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


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

To make the presentation concrete and appealing, the programming environments Matlab and Octave are adopted as faithful companions. The book 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 book and contains the bibliographical references for a more comprehensive treatment of the material.
