"Professional Financial Computing Using Excel and VBA is an admirable exposition that bridges the theoretical underpinnings of financial engineering and its application which usually appears as a "black-box" software application. The book opens the black-box and reveals the architecture of risk-modeling and financial...

Up to this point in your career you have been asked to use mathematics to solve
rather elementary problems in the physical sciences. However, when you graduate
and become a working scientist or engineer you will often be confronted with
complex real-world problems. Understanding the material in this book is a first
step toward...

This book grew out of my experience teaching MATLAB® and other computing languages to freshmen engineering students at Salt Lake Community College. I was frustrated by the lack of a text that “started at the beginning.” Although there were many comprehensive reference books, they assumed a level of both mathematical and...

One of the most valuable tools acquired in a university education, college algebra is essential for courses from the sciences to computing, engineering to mathematics. It can help you do better on placement exams, even before college, and it's useful in solving the computations...

Here’s an innovative shortcut to gaining a more intuitive understanding of both differential and integral calculus. In Calculus Demystified an experienced teacher and author of more than 30 books puts all the math background you need inside and uses practical examples,...

A quantum computer is a computer based on a computational model which uses quantum mechanics, which is a subfield of physics to study phenomena at the micro level. There has been a growing interest on quantum computing in the 1990's and some quantum computers at the experimental level were recently implemented. Quantum computers enable...

“In the twenty-first” century it is reasonable to expect that some of the most important developments in science and engineering will come about through interdisciplinary research. Already in the making is surely one of the most interesting and exciting development we are sure to see for a long time, quantum computation.
