Sofort lieferbar | * inkl. MwSt ggf. zzgl. Versandkosten
Easy-to-read text offering a gentle introduction to the necessary mathematics and computer science concepts
Focuses on explaining all details of how to construct programs to solve mathematical problems
Further emphasizes verification procedures and how to embed them in automatic test frameworks
Preface.- The first few steps.- Basic constructions.- Computing integrals.- Solving ordinary differential equations.- Solving partial differential equations.- Solving nonlinear algebraic equations.- Getting access to Python.- References.- Index
This book presents computer programming as a key method for solving mathematical problems. There are two versions of the book, one for MATLAB and one for Python. The book was inspired by the Springer book TCSE 6: A Primer on Scientific Programming with Python (by Langtangen), but the style is more accessible and concise, in keeping with the needs of engineering students.
The book outlines the shortest possible path from no previous experience with programming to a set of skills that allows the students to write simple programs for solving common mathematical problems with numerical methods in engineering and science courses. The emphasis is on generic algorithms, clean design of programs, use of functions, and automatic tests for verification.
