Book Description
Numerical Computing with MATLAB is a lively textbook for an introductory course in numerical methods, MATLAB, and technical computing. The emphasis is on the informed use of mathematical software; in particular, the presentation helps readers learn enough about the mathematical functions in MATLAB to use them correctly, appreciate their limitations, and modify them appropriately.
The topics covered include an introduction to MATLAB; linear equations; interpolation; zeros and roots; least squares; quadrature; ordinary differential equations; Fourier analysis; random numbers; eigenvalues and singular values; and partial differential equations. Motivating applications include modern problems from cryptography, touchtone dialing, Google pageranking, atmospheric science, and image processing, as well as classical problems from physics and engineering.
This book is designed for a onequarter or onesemester course primarily for students in science and engineering, at the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level. Prerequisites are calculus, some familiarity with ordinary differential equations and matrices, and some computer programming
This Electronic (Web) Edition includes changes and corrections made since the original edition was published in 2004.
About the Authors
Cleve B. Moler is Chairman and Chief Scientist at The MathWorks. Before abandoning academic life for the computer industry, Moler was a professor of mathematics and computer science for almost 20 years at the University of Michigan, Stanford University, and the University of New Mexico. He then spent five years with two computer hardware manufacturers, the Intel Hypercube organization and Ardent Computers. His professional interests center on numerical analysis and scientific computing. He is the original author of MATLAB, as well as one of the authors of the LINPACK and EISPACK scientific libraries for matrix computation.
