Product Description

Review

"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."
Computing Reviews

"... an instant 'classic,' a book that should be purchased and read by anyone who uses numerical methods ..."
American Journal of Physics

"... 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 ... delightful."
Physics in Canada

"... if you were to have only a single book on numerical methods, this is the one I would recommend."
EEE Computational Science & Engineering

"This encyclopedic book should be read (or at least owned) not only by those who must roll their own numerical methods, but by all who must use prepackaged programs."
New Scientist

"These books are a must for anyone doing scientific computing."
Journal of the American Chemical Society

"The authors are to be congratulated for providing the scientific community with a valuable resource."
The Scientist

"I think this is an incredibly valuable book for both learning and reference and I recommend it for any scientists or student in a numerate discipline who need to understand and/or program numerical algorithms."
International Association for Pattern Recognition

"The attractive style of the text and the availability of the codes ensured the popularity of the previous editions and also recommended this recent volume to different categories of readers, more or less experienced in numerical computation."
Octavian Pastravanu, Zentralblatt MATH

Book Description

The third edition of Numerical Recipes has wider coverage than ever before. New chapters cover classification and inference and computational geometry; new sections include MCMC, interior point methods, and an updated, expanded treatment of ODEs, all with completely new routines in C++.
