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

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

To make the presentation concrete 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.
