Product Description
Review
"The first edition of this book had received very positive feedback and was warmly welcomed by the mathematical community. It is very good news for all us is that the second revised edition is even better!"Svitlana P. Rogovchenko, Zentralblatt MATH
Praise for the previous edition: "The heart of Introduction to Computational Science is a collection of modules. Each module is either a discussion of a general computational issue or an investigation of an application. . . . [This book] has been carefully and thoughtfully written with students clearly in mind."William J. Satzer, MAA Reviews
Praise for the previous edition: "Introduction to Computational Science is useful for students and others who want to obtain some of the basic skills of the field. Its impressive collection of projects allows readers to quickly enjoy the power of modern computing as an essential tool in building scientific understanding."Wouter van Joolingen, Physics Today
Praise for the previous edition: "A masterpiece. I know of nothing comparable. I give it five stars."James M. Cargal, UMAP Journal
Praise for the previous edition: "This is an important book with a wonderful collection of examples, models, and references."Robert M. Panoff, Shodor Education Foundation
Praise for the previous edition: "This is a very good introduction to the field of computational science."Peter Turner, Clarkson University
"Despite its substantial weight, the book is extremely user friendly. . . . There are many different courses that one could build with this book as foundation, and it is an indispensible resource for anyone seeking to bring modeling projects into their classes."David M. Bressoud, UMAP Journal
