Taking an interdisciplinary approach and keeping the needs of a diverse readership in mind (including medical doctors, mathematicians, and politicians), Salleh (computational mathematics, U. Teknologi, Malaysia) and his co-authors 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 and approximation, differentiation and integration, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and ordinary or partial differential equations. With each chapter they provide summaries, numerical exercises and programming challenges and the publisher provides a companion website.
