Description

In addition to being an introduction to C++, this text also provides clear explanations of the basics of numerical methods, and is unique for its coverage of numerical methods used in scientific and engineering computation. In addition there is a general discussion of some of the basic paradigms for writing good programs and detecting errors. The result is a brief yet comprehensive treatment of the subject.show more
