Practical Numerical Mathematics with Matlab: A Workbook and Solutions (Paperback)
This workbook and solutions manual is intended for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students as a supplement to a traditional course in numerical mathematics and as preparation for independent research involving numerical mathematics. The solutions manual provides complete MATLAB code and numerical results for each of the exercises in the workbook and will be especially useful for those students without previous MATLAB programming experience. It is also valuable for classroom instructors to help pinpoint the author's intent in each exercise and to provide a model for graders. Upon completion of this material, students will have a working knowledge of MATLAB programming, they will have themselves programmed algorithms encountered in classwork and textbooks, and they will know how to check and verify their own programs against hand calculations and by reference to theoretical results, special polynomial solutions and other specialized solutions. No previous programming experience with MATLAB is necessary.
