Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book covers several important methods used in engineering models. … this book may provide engineers with an introduction to numerical methods … . the book will be of more … value to those interested in the computational aspects of the problems, or to those interested in the mathematics." (Jeffrey Putnam, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (5), 2008)
