Numerical Recipes in C Summary

Numerical Recipes in C: The Art of Scientific Computing by William H. Press

This is the revised and expanded second edition of the hugely popular Numerical Recipes: the Art of Scientific Computing. The product of a unique collaboration among four leading scientists in academic research and industry, Numerical Recipes is a complete text and reference book on scientific computing. In a self-contained manner, it proceeds from mathematical and theoretical considerations to actual, practical computer routines. With over 100 new routines, bringing the total to well over 300, plus upgraded versions of many of the original routines, this new edition is the most practical, comprehensive handbook of scientific computing available today. The book retains the informal, easy-to-read style that made the first edition so popular, even while introducing some more advanced topics. It is an ideal textbook for scientists and engineers, and an indispensable reference for anyone who works in scientific computing. The second edition is available in FORTRAN, the quintessential language for numerical calculations, and in the increasingly popular C language. Not simply a line-by-line translation of the FORTRAN routines, the C version takes advantage of many unique features of the C language, including dynamic memory allocation, modularization, pointer reference to matrices, structured programming, and much more.

Numerical Recipes in C Reviews

'If you are a programmer you need it. If you have someone to write programs for you, buy it as a birthday present.' Spectroscopy Europe
"...an instant `classic,' a book that should be purchased and read by anyone who uses numerical methods..." American Journal of Physics
"No matter what language you program in, these packages are classics, both as a textbook or reference. They are an essential and valuable addition to the academic, professional, or personal library." Internet
"The new book exceeds, if possible, the excellence of its predecessor: it is about 50 percent longer and has been thoroughly updated...The bibliographical material has been considerably extended and updated...For new users, it is sufficient to say that practically every aspect of numerical analysis is covered...This monumental and classic work is beautifully produced and of literary as well as mathematical quality. It is an essential component of any serious scientific or engineering library." A. D. Booth, Computing Reviews
"If you already have the first edition, will you want or need the second? The answer is a definitive yes...a book that should be on your desk (not your shelf) if you have any interest in the analysis of data or the formulation of models." Lyle W. Konigsberg, Human Biology
"...the second [edition] expands the scope of coverage and continues the standard of excellence achieved in the first. If you were to have only a single book on numerical methods, this is the one I would recommend." Edmund Miller, IEEE Computational Science & Engineering
"...remarkably complete...it contains many more routines than many commercial mathematics packages..." Byte
"The authors are to be congratulated for providing the scientific community with a valuable resource." The Scientist
"...replete with the standard spectrum of mathematically pretreated and coded/numerical routines for linear equations, matrices and arrays, curves, splines, polynomials, functions, roots, series, integrals, eigenvectors, FFT and other transforms, distributions, statistics, and on to ODE's and PDE's...such an education...is delightful..." Physics in Canada
