10 Reviews
The example books published as part of the Numerical Recipes second edition series contain source programs that exercise and demonstrate all of the Numerical Recipes subroutines. Each example program contains comments and is prefaced by a short description of what it does. The books contain all of the old material from the original edition as well as new material from the second edition. They will be valuable for readers who wish to incorporate procedures and subroutines into their own source programs. They are available in both FORTRAN and C. This book was first published in 1993.

Review: Numerical Recipes in C: The Art of Scientific Computing, Second Edition

User Review  - Ximing - Goodreads

The book includes many algorithms. I like the texts for background introduction, but not the codes. The code part reads obsolete. It takes a long time for me to get used reading the code. Read full review
