### Introduction to Scientific Computing: A Matrix-Vector Approach Using MATLAB (2nd Edition)

** ** Unique in content and approach, this book covers all the topics that are usually covered in an introduction to scientific computing--but folds in graphics and matrix-vector manipulation in a way that gets readers to appreciate the connection between continuous mathematics and computing. MATLAB 5 is used throughout to encourage experimentation, and each chapter focuses on a different important theorem--allowing readers to appreciate the rigorous side of scientific computing. In addition to standard topical coverage, each chapter includes 1) a sketch of a “hard” problem thatinvolves ill-conditioning, high dimension, etc.; 2)at least one theorem with both a rigorous proof and a “proof by MATLAB” experiment to bolster intuition; 3)at least one recursive algorithm; and 4)at least one connection to a real-world application. The book revolves around examples that are packaged in 200+ M-files, which, collectively, communicate all the key mathematical ideas and an appreciation for the subtleties of numerical computing. ** ** Power Tools of the Trade. Polynomial Interpolation. Piecewise Polynomial Interpolation. Numerical Integration. Matrix Computations. Linear Systems. The QR and Cholesky Factorizations. Nonlinear Equations and Optimization. The Initial Value Problem. ** ** For engineers and mathematicians.
