Designed to benefit scientific and engineering applications, Numerical Methods for Engineers and Scientists Using MATLAB® focuses on the fundamentals of numerical methods while making use of MATLAB software. The book introduces MATLAB early on and incorporates it throughout the chapters to perform symbolic, graphical, and numerical tasks. The text covers a variety of methods from curve fitting to solving ordinary and partial differential equations. Provides fully worked-out examples showing all details Confirms results through the execution of the user-defined function or the script file Executes built-in functions for re-confirmation, when available Generates plots regularly to shed light on the soundness and significance of the numerical results Created to be user-friendly and easily understandable, Numerical Methods for Engineers and Scientists Using MATLAB® provides background material and a broad introduction to the essentials of MATLAB, specifically its use with numerical methods. Building on this foundation, it introduces techniques for solving equations and focuses on curve fitting and interpolation techniques. It addresses numerical differentiation and integration methods, presents numerical methods for solving initial-value and boundary-value problems, and discusses the matrix eigenvalue problem, which entails numerical methods to approximate a few or all eigenvalues of a matrix. The book then deals with the numerical solution of partial differential equations, specifically those that frequently arise in engineering and science. The book presents a user-defined function or a MATLAB script file for each method, followed by at least one fully worked-out example. When available, MATLAB built-in functions are executed for confirmation of the results. A large set of exercises of varying levels of difficulty appears at the end of each chapter. The concise approach with strong, up-to-date MATLAB integration provided by this book affords readers a thorough knowledge of the fundamentals of numerical methods utilized in various disciplines.

Steven Chapra’s second edition, Applied Numerical Methods with MATLAB for Engineers and Scientists, is written for engineers and scientists who want to learn numerical problem solving. This text focuses on problem-solving (applications) rather than theory, using MATLAB, and is intended for Numerical Methods users; hence theory is included only to inform key concepts. The second edition feature new material such as Numerical Differentiation and ODE's: Boundary-Value Problems. For those who require a more theoretical approach, see Chapra's best-selling Numerical Methods for Engineers, 5/e (2006), also by McGraw-Hill.

## Boundary Element Methods for Engineers and Scientists

An Introductory Course with Advanced Topics

Over the past decades, the Boundary Element Method has emerged as a ver satile and powerful tool for the solution of engineering problems, presenting in many cases an alternative to the more widely used Finite Element Method. As with any numerical method, the engineer or scientist who applies it to a practical problem needs to be acquainted with, and understand, its basic principles to be able to apply it correctly and be aware of its limitations. It is with this intention that we have endeavoured to write this book: to give the student or practitioner an easy-to-understand introductory course to the method so as to enable him or her to apply it judiciously. As the title suggests, this book not only serves as an introductory course, but also cov ers some advanced topics that we consider important for the researcher who needs to be up-to-date with new developments. This book is the result of our teaching experiences with the Boundary Element Method, along with research and consulting activities carried out in the field. Its roots lie in a graduate course on the Boundary Element Method given by the authors at the university of Stuttgart. The experiences gained from teaching and the remarks and questions of the students have contributed to shaping the 'Introductory course' (Chapters 1-8) to the needs of the stu dents without assuming a background in numerical methods in general or the Boundary Element Method in particular.

View: 4346

This book is designed for an introductory course in numerical methods for students of engineering and science at universities and colleges of advanced education. It is an outgrowth of a course of lectures and tutorials (problem solving sessions) which the author has given for a number of years at the University of New South Wales and elsewhere. The course is normally taught at the rate of 1i hours per week throughout an academic year (28 weeks). It has occasionally been given at double this rate over half the year, but it was found that students had insufficient time to absorb the material and experiment with the methods. The material presented here is rather more than has been taught in anyone year, although all of it has been taught at some time. The book is concerned with the application of numerical methods to the solution of equations - algebraic, transcendental and differential - which will be encountered by students during their training and their careers. The theoretical foundation for the methods is not rigorously covered. Engineers and applied scientists (but not, of course, mathematicians) are more con cerned with using methods than with proving that they can be used. However, they 'must be satisfied that the methods are fit to be used, and it is hoped that students will perform sufficient numerical experiments to con vince themselves of this without the need for more than the minimum of theory which is presented here.
