Computing for numerical methods using Visual C++.


Computing for numerical methods using Visual C++.

Salleh Shaharuddin et al.



448 pages



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.


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 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 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.
