This book contains the routines and demonstration programs from the first edition of the highly acclaimed reference book, Numerical Recipes: The Art of Scientific Computing. It includes computer code and code captions from the book and example book and the commentary from the example book. The author employs a contemporary version of BASIC, Microsoft QuickBasic 4.5, which roughly follows the structure of FORTRAN; in fact, the recipes found in this book are easily adapted for other modern forms of BASIC. This book is recommended for use with one of the main Numerical Recipes books, such as Numerical Recipes in Fortran 77 [link to 43064X]. The programs contained in this book are also available as machine-readable code on the Numerical Recipes Code CD-ROM with Windows/Macintosh Single Screen License [link to 576083].
