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

Description

This textbook is an introduction to Scientific Computing, in which several numerical 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 systems, approximate functions by polynomials and construct accurate approximations for the of ordinary and partial equations.

To make the presentation concrete and appealing, the programming environments Matlab and Octave are adopted as faithful companions. The contains the to several problems posed in exercises and examples, often originating from important applications. 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.
