Numerical Methods for Scientists and Engineers 2nd edition by R. W. Hamming provides detailed guidelines to use worksheet functions to work with matrix to find roots of equations and solve systems of simultaneous equations and solve ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations
For this book, the author has extensively rearranged, rewritten, and enlarged the material. It is unique in its emphasis on the frequency approach and its use in the solution of problems. It also presents the fundamentals of numerical methods with emphasis on the most essential and widely used methods.
Students enhance their programming skills using the MATLAB environment to implement algorithms. The goals of the book’s problems are three-fold: to improve the understanding of numerical methods, to provide the opportunity to improve programming skills, and to use MATLAB as a tool for solving realistic problems in engineering and science.
Designed for the newest version of the popular MATLAB, the brevity makes this textbook the perfect introduction to numerical methods or second- or third-year students. Material is appropriate for 2nd and 3rd year students and professionals unfamiliar with Numerical Methods. Realistic applications from engineering and science motivate students.
Text includes many examples and end-of-chapter problems to help students learn numerical methods. Three levels of homework problems address applying numerical methods techniques with traditional pencil and paper and with MATLAB—see end-of-chapter problem sets. Students use MATLAB’s built-in functions as tools for problem-solving and become familiar with a variety of numerical methods useful to practicing engineers.
