  • Inside this Book

Numerical Methods for Engineers and Scientists Using MATLAB, 3rd edition, provides the reader with a broad knowledge of the fundamentals of numerical methods utilized in various disciplines in engineering and science. The powerful software MATLAB is introduced at the outset and is assimilated throughout the book to perform symbolic, graphical, and numerical tasks. The textbook, written at the junior/senior level, methodically covers a wide range of techniques ranging from curve fitting a set of data to numerically solving initial- and boundary-value problems. Each method is accompanied by at least one fully worked-out example, followed by either a user-defined function or a MATLAB script file.
