About this Book
A visual, interdisciplinary approach to solving problems in numerical methods
Computing for Numerical Methods Using Visual C++ fills the need for a complete, authoritative book on the visual solutions to problems in numerical methods using C++. In an age of boundless research, there is a need for a programming language that can successfully bridge the communication gap between a problem and its computing elements through the use of visual-ization for engineers and members of varying disciplines, such as biologists, medical doctors, mathematicians, economists, and politicians. This book takes an interdisciplinary approach to the subject and demonstrates how solving problems in numerical methods using C++ is dominant and practical for implementation due to its flexible language format, object-oriented methodology, and support for high numerical precisions.
In an accessible, easy-to-follow style, the authors cover:
Numerical modeling using C++
Fundamental mathematical tools
Systems of linear equations
Interpolation and approximation
Differentiation and integration
Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors
Ordinary differential equations
Partial differential equations
This reader-friendly book includes a companion Web site, giving readers free access to all of the codes discussed in the book as well as an equation parser called "MyParser" that can be used to develop various numerical applications on Windows. Computing for Numerical Methods Using Visual C++ serves as an excellent reference for students in upper undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in engineering, science, and mathematics. It is also an ideal resource for practitioners using Microsoft Visual C++.
