Numerical Problems

  • Steven S. Skiena


If most problems you encounter are numerical in nature,there is an excellent chance that you are reading the wrong book. Numerical Recipes [PFTV07] gives a terrific overview to the fundamental problems in numerical computing, including linear algebra, numerical integration, statistics, and differential equations.Different flavors of the book include source code for all the algorithms in C++, Fortran, and even Pascal.


Matrix Multiplication Discrete Fourier Transform Knapsack Problem Numerical Problem Unconstrained Optimization 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
