Numerical recipes : the art of scientific computing by
William H Press(
Book
)
123 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 2,782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Coauthored by four leading scientists from academia and industry, Numerical Recipes Third Edition starts with basic mathematics and computer science and proceeds to complete, working routines. Widely recognized as the most comprehensive, accessible and practical basis for scientific computing, this new edition incorporates more than 400 Numerical Recipes routines, many of them new or upgraded. The executable C++ code, now printed in color for easy reading, adopts an objectoriented style particularly suited to scientific applications. The whole book is presented in the informal, easytoread style that made earlier editions so popular. New key features: 2 new chapters, 25 new sections, 25% longer than Second Edition; Thorough upgrades throughout the text; Over 100 completely new routines and upgrades of many more; New Classification and Inference chapter, including Gaussian mixture models, HMMs, hierarchical clustering, Support Vector Machines; New Computational Geometry chapter covers KD trees, quad and octrees, Delaunay triangulation, and algorithms for lines, polygons, triangles, and spheres; New sections include interior point methods for linear programming, Monte Carlo Markov Chains, spectral and pseudospectral methods for PDEs, and many new statistical distributions; An expanded treatment of ODEs with completely new routines; Comprehensive coverage of: linear algebra, interpolation, special functions, random numbers, nonlinear sets of equations, optimization, eigensystems, Fourier methods and wavelets, statistical tests, ODEs and PDEs, integral equations, and inverse theory, and more.

"This is the revised and greatly expanded Second Edition of the hugely popular Numerical Recipes: The Art of Scientific Computing. The product of a unique collaboration among four leading scientists in academic research and industry, Numerical Recipes is a complete text and reference book on scientific computing. In a selfcontained manner it proceeds from mathematical and theoretical considerations to actual practical computer routines. With over 100 new routines (now well over 300 in all), plus upgraded versions of many of the original routines, this book is more than ever the most practical, comprehensive handbook of scientific computing available today." "The book retains the informal, easytoread style that made the first edition so popular, with many new topics presented at the same accessible level. In addition, some sections of more advanced material have been introduced, set off in small type from the main body of the text. Numerical Recipes is an ideal textbook for scientists and engineers and an indispensable reference for anyone who works in scientific computing." "Highlights of the new material include a new chapter on integral equations and inverse methods; multigrid methods for solving partial differential equations; improved random number routines; wavelet transforms; the statistical bootstrap method; a new chapter on "lessnumerical" algorithms including compression coding and arbitrary precision arithmetic; band diagonal linear systems; linear algebra on sparse matrices; Cholesky and QR decomposition; calculation of numerical derivatives; Pade approximants, and rational Chebyshev approximation; new special functions; Monte Carlo integration in highdimensional spaces; globally convergent methods for sets of nonlinear equations; an expanded chapter on fast Fourier methods; spectral analysis on unevenly sampled data; SavitzkyGolay smoothing filters; and twodimensional KolmogorovSmirnoff tests." "All this is in addition to material on such basic topics as: linear equations, interpolation and extrapolation, integration, nonlinear rootfinding, eigensystems, ordinary differential equations, evaluation of functions, sorting, optimization, statistical description and modeling of data, and twopoint boundary value problems."Jacket
