Steven Chapra's Applied Numerical Methods with MATLAB, third edition, is written for engineering and science students who need to learn numerical problem solving. Theory is introduced to inform key concepts which are framed in applications and demonstrated using MATLAB. The book is designed for a one-semester or one-quarter course in numerical methods typically taken by undergraduates. The third edition feature new chapters on Numerical Differentiation, Optimization, and Boundary-Value Problems (ODEs) and is accompanied by an extensive set of m-files and instrutor materials.
