Are you familiar with the IEEE floating point arithmetic standard? Would you like to understand it better? This book gives a broad overview of numerical computing, in a historical context, with a special focus on the IEEE standard for binary floating point arithmetic. Key ideas are developed step by step, taking the reader from floating point...

Learn how to solve complex differential equations using MATLAB®

Introduction to Numerical Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations Using MATLAB® teaches readers how to numerically solve both ordinary and partial differential equations with ease. This innovative publication brings together a skillful treatment of MATLAB...

The goal of this book is to teach computational scientists and engineers how to develop tailored, flexible, and efficient working environments built from small programs (scripts) written in the easy-to-learn, very high-level language Python. The focus is on examples and applications of relevance to computational science: gluing existing...

T he limitations of analytical methods in practical applications have led mathematicians to evolve numerical methods. We know that exact methods often fail in drawing plausible inferences from a given set of tabulated data or in finding roots of transcendental equations or in solving non-linear differential equations.

This title features subject matter that is organised logically to make it easy and interesting for the students. Emphasis has been given on the basics of geotechnical earthquake engineering. Home work problems have been given at the end of each chapter to test the understanding of concepts given in the chapter. At the end of appropriate...

This work is an introduction to mathematical analysis at an elementary level. Emphasis is given to the construction of national and then real numbers, using the method of equivalence classes and of Cauchy sequences. The text includes the presentation of: sequences of real numbers, infinite numerical series, continuous functions, deriviatives...

Every day decision making and decision making in complex human-centric systems are characterized by imperfect decision-relevant information. Main drawback of the existing decision theories is namely incapability to deal with imperfect information and modeling vague preferences. Actually, a paradigm of non-numerical probabilities in decision...

Approaches to the recovery of three-dimensional information on a biological object, which are often formulated or implemented initially in an intuitive way, are concisely described here based on physical models of the object and the image-formation process. Both three-dimensional electron microscopy and X-ray tomography can be captured in the...

Aimed at graduates and researchers, and requiring only a basic knowledge of multi-variable calculus, this introduction to computer-based partial differential equation (PDE) modeling provides readers with the practical methods necessary to develop and use PDE mathematical models in biomedical engineering. Taking an applied approach, rather...

Hilbert space frames have long served as a valuable tool for signal and image processing due to their resilience to additive noise, quantization, and erasures, as well as their ability to capture valuable signal characteristics. More recently, finite frame theory has grown into an important research topic in its own right, with a myriad...

'I recommend this book to anyone who wants to appreciate the often subtle interactions between algorithm research and engineering applications. For the engineer, it comprehensively summarizes 25 years of intellectual development in the understanding of the basic Lanczos algorithm and its many variants. For the numerical analysts, it describes the...

The presentation and interpretation of (non-relativistic) quantum mechanics is a very well-worked area of study; there have to be very good reasons for adding to the literature on this subject.

My reasons are (obviously) that I am far from satisfied with much of the published work and find difficulties with some points, in...
