Numerical Solution of Ordinary Differential Equations: For Classical, Relativistic and Nano Systems

Front Cover
Wiley, Jan 13, 2006 - Science - 216 pages
This work meets the need for an affordable textbook that helps in understanding numerical solutions of ODE. Carefully structured by an experienced textbook author, it provides a survey of ODE for various applications, both classical and modern, including such special applications as relativistic systems. The examples are carefully explained and compiled into an algorithm, each of which is presented independent of a specific programming language. Each chapter is rounded off with exercises.
