Computational Mathematics in Engineering and Applied Science provides numerical algorithms and associated software for solving a spectrum of problems in ordinary differential equations (ODEs), differential algebraic equations (DAEs), and partial differential equations (PDEs) that occur in science and engineering. It presents detailed examples, each including a complete analysis of a computer code written in transportable Fortran 77. Each example also includes a discussion of the problem equations, the coding of the equations, and the computed numerical solution. The benefits of using quality general-purpose library routines to solve ODE/DAE/PDE problems are illustrated as well.

This popular, classic book is a valuable reference for methodologies in numerical mathematics applicable to a broad spectrum of problems encountered across many disciplines- virtually all fields of science and engineering. It also serves as an excellent text for senior undergraduates or beginning graduate students in computational science.
