The rapid development of high speed digital computers and the increasing desire for numerical answers to applied problems have led to increased demands in the courses dealing with the methods and techniques of numerical analysis. Numerical methods have always been useful but their role in the present-day scientific research has become prominent. For example, they enable one to find the roots of transcendental equations and in solving nonlinear differential equations. Indeed, they give the solution when ordinary analytical methods fail.
This well-organized and comprehensive text aims at enhancing and strengthening numerical methods concepts among students using C++ programming, a fast emerging preferred programming language among software developers. The book provides an synthesis of both theory and practice. It focuses on the core areas of numerical analysis including algebraic equations, interpolation, boundary value problem, and matrix eigenvalue problems. The mathematical concepts are supported by a number of solved examples. Extensive self-review exercises and answers are provided at the end of each chapter to help students review and reinforce the key concepts.
KEY FEATURES :
C++ programs are provided for all numerical methods discussed.
More than 400 unsolved problems and 200 solved problems are included to help students test their grasp of the subject.
The book is intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Mathematics, Engineering and Statistics. Besides, students pursuing BCA and MCA and having Numerical Methods with C++ Programming as a subject in their course will benefit from this book.
