Item description for Solving Problems in Scientific Computing Using Maple and MATLAB by Walter Gander & Jiri Hrebicek...
From the reviews: "... An excellent reference on undergraduate mathematical computing." American Mathematical Monthly"... the book is worth buying if you want guidance in applying Maple and MATLAB to problems in the workplace..." Computing Reviews"... The presentation is unique, and extremely interesting. I was thrilled to read this text, and to learn the powerful problem-solving skills presented by these authors. I recommend the text highly, as a learning experience, not only to engineering students, but also to anyone interested in computation." Mathematics of ComputationFor this edition four chapters have been added. Some of the chapters of the previous editions were revised using new possibilities offered by Maple and MATLAB. Some interesting web pages related to Maple and MATLAB have been added in an appendix. Moreover, the editors have created a web page (www.SolvingProblems.inf.ethz.ch), where all Maple and MATLAB programs are available.

Reviews - What do customers think about Solving Problems in Scientific Computing Using Maple and MATLAB?
Nice Selection of Topics, Good Book Sep 30, 1998
I am a big fan of MATLAB, and this is a good book, therefore, this book seems perfect for a Computational Sciences Survey course for undergraduates. Professionals, such as engineers or mathmematicians, can use this book to learn how easy it is to use Maple and MATLAB.
The topics are diverse, and are not systematic, which I consider to be a strength for this type of book. The writing is concise and direct.
The book is written primarily by Swiss and Czech authors; some minor grammer and puncuation errors exist and the references list many non-english titles. I think this is a strength: it is important to realize the international nature of Compuational Science.
