( This textbook is an introduction to Scientific Computin...)
This textbook is an introduction to Scientific Computing, in which several numerical methods for the computer solution of certain classes of mathematical problems are illustrated. The authors show how to compute the zeros or the integrals of continuous functions, solve linear systems, approximate functions by polynomials and construct accurate approximations for the solution of ordinary and partial differential equations. To make the presentation concrete and appealing, the programming environments Matlab and Octave, which is freely distributed, are adopted as faithful companions. The book contains the solutions to several problems posed in exercises and examples, often originating from specific applications. A specific section is devoted to subjects which were not addressed in the book and contains the bibliographical references for a more comprehensive treatment of the material. The second edition features many new problems and examples, as well as more numerical methods for linear and nonlinear systems and ordinary and partial differential equations. This book is presently being translated or has appeared in the following languages: Italian, German, French, Chinese and Spanish. Reviews for "Scientific Computing with MATLAB" - 1st edition: " ... Scientific Computing with MATLAB is written in a clear and concise style, figures, tables and formula boxes complement the explanations... The whole book is an invitation, if not a request, of the authors to the reader to play with MATLAB, apply its powerful menagerie of functions to solve the given (or own) problems - in brief, supervised learning by doing .... is a stimulating introductory textbook about numerical methods that successfully combines mathematical theory with programming experience..." Anselm A.C. Horn, Journal of Molecular Modeling 2004 "... An excellent addition to academic libraries and university bookstores, this book will be useful for self-study and as a complement to other MATLAB-based books. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." S.T. Karris, Choice 2003

This is the softcover reprint of the very popular hardcover edition. This book deals with the numerical approximation of partial differential equations. Its scope is to provide a thorough illustration of numerical methods, carry out their stability and convergence analysis, derive error bounds, and discuss the algorithmic aspects relative to their implementation. A sound balancing of theoretical analysis, description of algorithms and discussion of applications is one of its main features. Many kinds of problems are addressed. A comprehensive theory of Galerkin method and its variants, as well as that of collocation methods, are developed for the spatial discretization. These theories are then specified to two numerical subspace realizations of remarkable interest: the finite element method and the spectral method.

This book provides the mathematical foundations of numerical methods and demonstrates their performance on examples, exercises and real-life applications. This is done using the MATLAB software environment, which allows an easy implementation and testing of the algorithms for any specific class of problems. The book is addressed to students in Engineering, Mathematics, Physics and Computer Sciences. In the second edition of this extremely popular textbook on numerical analysis, the readability of pictures, tables and program headings has been improved. Several changes in the chapters on iterative methods and on polynomial approximation have also been

Domain decomposition methods are designed to allow the effective numerical solution of partial differential equations on parallel computer architectures. They comprise a relatively new field of study but have already found important applications in many branches of physics and engineering. In this book the authors illustrate the basic mathematical concepts behind domain decomposition, looking at a large variety of boundary value problems. Contents include symmetric elliptic equations, advection-diffusion equations, the elasticity problem, the Stokes problem for incompressible and compressible fluids, the time-harmonic Maxwell equations, parabolic and hyperbolic equations, and suitable couplings of heterogeneous equations.

Following up the seminal Spectral Methods in Fluid Dynamics, Spectral Methods: Evolution to Complex Geometries and Applications to Fluid Dynamics contains an extensive survey of the essential algorithmic and theoretical aspects of spectral methods for complex geometries. These types of spectral methods were only just emerging at the time the earlier book was published. The discussion of spectral algorithms for linear and nonlinear fluid dynamics stability analyses is greatly expanded. The chapter on spectral algorithms for incompressible flow focuses on algorithms that have proven most useful in practice, has much greater coverage of algorithms for two or more non-periodic directions, and shows how to treat outflow boundaries. Material on spectral methods for compressible flow emphasizes boundary conditions for hyperbolic systems, algorithms for simulation of homogeneous turbulence, and improved methods for shock fitting. This book is a companion to Spectral Methods: Fundamentals in Single Domains.

From the review: ".... This carefully written textbook, the third English edition, contains substantial new developments on the numerical solution of differential equations. It is typeset in a two-color design and is written in a style suited for readers who have mathematics, natural sciences, computer sciences or economics as a background and who are interested in a well-organized introduction to the subject."

This is a book about spectral methods for partial differential equations: when to use them, how to implement them, and what can be learned from their of spectral methods has evolved rigorous theory. The computational side vigorously since the early 1970s, especially in computationally intensive of the more spectacular applications are applications in fluid dynamics. Some of the power of these discussed here, first in general terms as examples of the methods have been methods and later in great detail after the specifics covered. This book pays special attention to those algorithmic details which are essential to successful implementation of spectral methods. The focus is on algorithms for fluid dynamical problems in transition, turbulence, and aero dynamics. This book does not address specific applications in meteorology, partly because of the lack of experience of the authors in this field and partly because of the coverage provided by Haltiner and Williams (1980). The success of spectral methods in practical computations has led to an increasing interest in their theoretical aspects, especially since the mid-1970s. Although the theory does not yet cover the complete spectrum of applications, the analytical techniques which have been developed in recent years have facilitated the examination of an increasing number of problems of practical interest. In this book we present a unified theory of the mathematical analysis of spectral methods and apply it to many of the algorithms in current use.
