Numerical Recipes 3rd Edition: The Art of Scientific ComputingCoauthored by four leading scientists from academia and industry, Numerical Recipes Third Edition starts with basic mathematics and computer science and proceeds to complete, working routines. Widely recognized as the most comprehensive, accessible and practical basis for scientific computing, this new edition incorporates more than 400 Numerical Recipes routines, many of them new or upgraded. The executable C++ code, now printed in color for easy reading, adopts an objectoriented style particularly suited to scientific applications. The whole book is presented in the informal, easytoread style that made earlier editions so popular. Please visit www.nr.com or www.cambridge.org/us/numericalrecipes for more details.
