# Numerical Methods with VBA Programming

Jones & Bartlett Learning, 2008 - Computers - 285 pages
Numerical Methods with VBA Programming provides a unique and unified treatment of numerical methods and VBA computer programming, topics that naturally support one another within the study of engineering and science. This engaging text incorporates real-world scenarios to motivate technical material, helping students understand and retain difficult and key concepts. Such examples include comparing a two-point boundary value problem to determining when you should leave for the airport to catch a scheduled flight. Numerical examples are accompanied by closed-form solutions to demonstrate their correctness. Within the programming sections, tips are included that go beyond language basics to make programming more accessible for students. A unique section suggest ways in which the starting values for non-linear equations may be estimated. Flow charts for many of the numerical techniques discussed provide general guidance to students without revealing all of the details. Useful appendices provide summaries of Excel and VBA commands, Excel functions accessible in VBA, basics of differentiation, and more!
