Reviews - What do customers think about Numerical Algorithms With Fortran?
not just for Fortran programmers Jul 17, 2005
An excellent advanced book on numerical methods. The authors discuss a variety of methods, and furnish example code written in Fortran. A good indication of the serious nature of the book comes in seeing that right at the second chapter, it discusses solving nonlinear systems. More elementary books often neglect this, or put give more emphasis on handling linear systems, since these are amenable to matrix techniques.
The choice of Fortran for coding underscores that language's continued dominance of numerical work in science and engineering. Though if you are skilled in another language, you may still want to consider this book. The descriptions of the algorithms are explicit enough that you should be able to code from those in your language.
