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

Description

This is an introduction to Computing, in which several numerical for the of certain classes of mathematical are illustrated. The authors show how to compute the zeros or the integrals of continuous functions, solve linear systems, approximate functions by polynomials and construct accurate approximations for the of ordinary and partial .

To make the presentation and appealing, the programming environments Matlab and Octave are adopted as faithful companions. The book contains the solution 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.
