Computing for numerical methods using Visual C++.9780470127957 Computing for numerical methods using Visual C++. Salleh Shaharuddin et al. WileyInterscience 2008 448 pages $110.00 Hardcover Wiley series on parallel and distributed computing (1) The use of multiple computers networked throughout a wide geographical area, or the world via the Internet, in order to solve a single problem. See grid computing. (2) The use of multiple computers in an enterprise rather than one centralized system. QA76.73 Taking an interdisciplinary approach and keeping the needs of a diverse readership in mind (including medical doctors, mathematicians, and politicians), Salleh (computational mathematics Computational mathematics involves mathematical research in areas of science where computing plays a central and essential role, emphasizing algorithms, numerical methods, and symbolic methods. Computation in the research is prominent. , U. Teknologi, Malaysia) and his coauthors explain ways to bridge the gap between a problem and its computing elements through the use of visualization. They also cover the needs of professionals seeking a resource as well as undergraduate and graduate students as they explain modeling and simulation, fundamental tools for mathematical computing, numerical interface designs, systems of linear equations, nonlinear equations, interpolation interpolation In mathematics, estimation of a value between two known data points. A simple example is calculating the mean (see mean, median, and mode) of two population counts made 10 years apart to estimate the population in the fifth year. and approximation, differentiation and integration, eigenvalues eigenvalues statistical term meaning latent root. and eigenvectors, and ordinary or partial differential equations partial differential equation In mathematics, an equation that contains partial derivatives, expressing a process of change that depends on more than one independent variable. . With each chapter they provide summaries, numerical exercises and programming challenges and the publisher provides a companion website. ([c]20082005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR)
