"Numerical Methods for Engineers and Scientists: An Introduction with Applications using MATLAB" by Amos Gilat
ITexLi | 2014 | ISBN: 1118803019 9781118803011 | pages | PDF | MB
This book provides engineers with a more concise treatment of the essential topics of numerical methods while emphasizing MATLAB use. The third edition includes a new chapter, with all new content, on Fourier Transform and a new chapter on Eigenvalues (compiled from existing Second Edition content). The focus is placed on the use of anonymous functions instead of inline functions and the uses of subfunctions and nested functions. This updated edition includes 50% new or updated Homework Problems, updated examples, helping engineers test their understanding and reinforce key concepts.
New To This Edition
NEW Chapter: A new chapter (Chapter 7) on Fourier Methods has been added to the book. The chapter covers Fourier series, discrete Fourier series, Discrete Fourier Transform, and an introduction to the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT), which is widely used in engineering for processing digital data.
Eignvalues and Eignvectors: This topic, which was part of Chapter 4 (Solving a System of Linear Equations) in the first two editions of the book, is now covered in a separate chapter, further strengthening the coverage of this key topic.
MATLAB: The third edition of the book is updated to MATLAB R2012b. All the programs use anonymous functions, and function handles are used for passing functions into functions. Appendix A has been updated to the current version of MATLAB.
Homework Problems: Increased number of end-of-chapter problems to approximately 40 per chapter. About 50% of end-of-chapter problems have been revised.
