MATLAB® is tightly integrated into every portion of this book, and its graphical capabilities are used to present vibrant pictures of curves and surfaces. Readers benefit from the deep connections made between mathematics and science while learning more about the intrinsic geometry of curves and surfaces. With serious yet elementary explanation of various numerical algorithms, this textbook enlivens the teaching of multivariable calculus and mathematical methods courses for scientists and engineers.

Ronald L. Graham,‎ Donald E. Knuth,‎ Oren Patashnik ... 672 pages - Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional; 2nd edition (March, 1994) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0201558025 - ISBN-13: 978-0201558029.

This book introduces the mathematics that supports advanced computer programming and the analysis of algorithms. The primary aim of its well-known authors is to provide a solid and relevant base of mathematical skills - the skills needed to solve complex problems, to evaluate horrendous sums, and to discover subtle patterns in data. It is an indispensable text and reference not only for computer scientists - the authors themselves rely heavily on it! - but for serious users of mathematics in virtually every discipline. Concrete Mathematics is a blending of CONtinuous and disCRETE mathematics. "More concretely," the authors explain, "it is the controlled manipulation of mathematical formulas, using a collection of techniques for solving problems." The subject matter is primarily an expansion of the Mathematical Preliminaries section in Knuth's classic Art of Computer Programming, but the style of presentation is more leisurely, and individual topics are covered more deeply. Several new topics have been added, and the most significant ideas have been traced to their historical roots. The book includes more than 500 exercises, divided into six categories. Complete answers are provided for all exercises, except research problems, making the book particularly valuable for self-study. Major topics include: Sums * Recurrences * Integer functions * Elementary number theory * Binomial coefficients * Generating functions * Discrete probability * Asymptotic methods. This second edition includes important new material about mechanical summation. In response to the widespread use of the first edition as a reference book, the bibliography and index have also been expanded, and additional nontrivial improvements can be found on almost every page. Readers will appreciate the informal style of Concrete Mathematics. Particularly enjoyable are the marginal graffiti contributed by students who have taken courses based on this material. The authors want to convey not only the importance of the techniques presented, but some of the fun in learning and using them.

Although pseudocodes, Mathematica®, and MATLAB® illustrate how algorithms work, designers of engineering systems write the vast majority of large computer programs in the Fortran language. Using Fortran 95 to solve a range of practical engineering problems, Numerical Methods for Engineers, Second Edition provides an introduction to numerical methods, incorporating theory with concrete computing exercises and programmed examples of the techniques presented. Covering a wide range of numerical applications that have immediate relevancy for engineers, the book describes forty-nine programs in Fortran 95. Many of the programs discussed use a sub-program library called nm_lib that holds twenty-three subroutines and functions. In addition, there is a precision module that controls the precision of calculations. Well-respected in their field, the authors discuss a variety of numerical topics related to engineering. Some of the chapter features include… The numerical solution of sets of linear algebraic equations - Roots of single nonlinear equations and sets of nonlinear equations - Numerical quadrature, or numerical evaluation of integrals - An introduction to the solution of partial differential equations using finite difference and finite element approaches. Describing concise programs that are constructed using sub-programs wherever possible, this book presents many different contexts of numerical analysis, forming an excellent introduction to more comprehensive subroutine libraries such as the numerical algorithm group (NAG)..

This book is intended for someone learning functions of a complex variable and who enjoys using MATLAB. It will enhance the exprience of learning complex variable theory and will strengthen the knowledge of someone already trained in ths branch of advanced calculus. ABET, the accrediting board for engineering programs, makes it clear that engineering graduates must be skilled in the art of programming in a language such as MATLAB®. Supplying students with a bridge between the functions of complex variable theory and MATLAB, this supplemental text enables instructors to easily add a MATLAB component to their complex variables courses. A MATLAB® Companion to Complex Variables provides readers with a clear understanding of the utility of MATLAB in complex variable calculus. An ideal adjunct to standard texts on the functions of complex variables, the book allows professors to quickly find and assign MATLAB programming problems that will strengthen students’ knowledge of the language and concepts of complex variable theory. The book shows students how MATLAB can be a powerful learning aid in such staples of complex variable theory as conformal mapping, infinite series, contour integration, and Laplace and Fourier transforms. In addition to MATLAB programming problems, the text includes many examples in each chapter along with MATLAB code. Fractals, the most recent interesting topic involving complex variables, demands to be treated with a language such as MATLAB. This book concludes with a Coda, which is devoted entirely to this visually intriguing subject. MATLAB is not without constraints, limitations, irritations, and quirks, and there are subtleties involved in performing the calculus of complex variable theory with this language. Without knowledge of these subtleties, engineers or scientists attempting to use MATLAB for solutions of practical problems in complex variable theory suffer the risk of making major mistakes. This book serves as an early warning system about these pitfalls.
