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


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

To make the presentation and appealing, the programming environments and Octave are adopted as faithful companions. The 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 and contains the bibliographical references for a more comprehensive treatment of the material.
