Scientific Computing and Differential Equations: An Introduction to Numerical Methods, is an excellent complement to Introduction to Numerical Methods by Ortega and Poole. The book emphasizes the importance of solving differential equations on a computer, which comprises a large part of what has come to be called scientific computing. It reviews modern scientific computing, outlines its applications, and places the subject in a larger context. This book is appropriate for upper undergraduate courses in mathematics, electrical engineering, and computer science; it is also well-suited to serve as a textbook for numerical differential equations courses at the graduate level. * An introductory chapter gives an overview of scientific computing, indicating its important role in solving differential equations, and placing the subject in the larger environment * Contains an introduction to numerical methods for both ordinary and partial differential equations * Concentrates on ordinary differential equations, especially boundary-value problems * Contains most of the main topics for a first course in numerical methods, and can serve as a text for this course * Uses material for junior/senior level undergraduate courses in math and computer science plus material for numerical differential equations courses for engineering/science students at the graduate levelGolub, Gene H. is the author of 'Scientific Computing and Differential Equations An Introduction to Numerical Methods', published 1991 under ISBN 9780122892554 and ISBN 0122892550.
