About the Book :
Applied Numerical Methods using MATLAB book is designed as an introductory undergraduate or graduate course for science and engineering students of all disciplines. The text covers all major aspects of applied numerical methods, including numerical computations, solution of algebraic and transdental equations, finite differences and interpolation, curve fitting, correlation and regression, numerical differentiation and integration, matrices and linear system of equations, numerical solution of ordinary differential equations, and numerical solution of partial differential equations. The book continues to maintain a student-friendly approach and numerical problem solving orientation. Presentations are limited to very basic topics to serve as an introduction to advanced topics in those areas of discipline. The purpose of the book is to present the principles and concepts of applied numerical methods as relevant to student learning. Some of the salient features of the book are:
The numerous worked examples and unsolved exercise problems are intended to provide the reader with an awareness of the general applicability of principles and concepts of applied numerical methods. An extensive bibliography to guide the student to further sources of information on applied numerical methods topics covered in this book is provided at the end of the book. Answers to all end-of chapter problems are given in the book.
