Features

  • Is the only high-quality numeric library in Java available on the market
  • Includes a CD-ROM that provides the code and programs needed to run the procedures found in the text
  • Provides a resource in a format much more compact than in NUMAL, permitting loading onto PC
  • Offers both Java source and object code
  • Maintains compactness of library by grouping worked examples in easily-accessed appendix
  • Preserves original order of NUMAL procedures
  • Allows the user to experiment with the many JAVA procedures provided to observe computational success and simulate failure
  • Summary

    At last researchers have an inexpensive library of Java-based numeric procedures for use in scientific computation. The first and only book of its kind, A Numeric Library in Java for Scientists and Engineers is a translation into Java of the library NUMAL (NUMerical procedures in ALgol 60).

    This groundbreaking text presents procedural descriptions for linear algebra, ordinary and partial differential equations, optimization, parameter estimation, mathematical physics, and other tools that are indispensable to any dynamic research group.

    The book offers test programs that allow researchers to execute the examples provided; users are free to construct their own tests and apply the numeric procedures to them in order to observe a successful computation or simulate failure. The entry for each procedure is logically presented, with name, usage parameters, and Java code included.

    This handbook serves as a powerful research tool, enabling the performance of critical computations in Java. It stands as a cost-efficient alternative to expensive commercial software package of procedural components.
