*******Text Available 6/25/2004!********** Steven Chapra's new text, Applied Numerical Methods with MATLAB for Engineers and Scientists, is written for engineers and scientists who want to learn numerical problem solving. Aimed at numerical methods users rather than developers, the text employs problems rather than mathematics to motivate readers. Guided by Chapra's proven student-oriented pedagogy, including chapter objectives, worked examples, and student-friendly problems, the reader builds a strong working knowledge of numerical problem solving while moving progressively through the text.
