Numerical Methods Engineering with MATLAB – Kiusalaas – 2nd Edition


Numerical Methods in with ® is a text for engineering students and a for practicing engineers. The choice of numerical methods was based on their relevance to engineering problems. Every method is discussed thoroughly and illustrated with problems involving both hand and programming. MATLAB M-files accompany each method and are available on the website.

This code is made simple and easy to understand by avoiding book-keeping schemes, while maintaining the essential features of the method. MATLAB was chosen as the example language because of its ubiquitous use in engineering studies and practice.

This new edition includes the new MATLAB anonymous functions, which allow the programmer to embed functions into the program rather than storing them as separate files. Other changes include the addition of rational function interpolation in Chapter 3, the addition of Ridder’s method in place of Brent’s method in Chapter 4, and the addition of downhill simplex method in place of the Fletcher-Reeves method of in Chapter 10.
