Co-authored by four leading scientists from academia and industry, Numerical Recipes Third Edition starts with basic mathematics and computer science and proceeds to complete, working routines.

Widely recognised as the most comprehensive, accessible and practical basis for scientific computing, this new edition incorporates more than 400 Numerical Recipes routines, many of them new or upgraded. The executable C++ code, now printed in colour for easy reading, adopts an object-oriented style particularly suited to scientific applications.

The whole book is presented in the informal, easy-to-read style that made earlier editions so popular. More information concerning licenses is available at: www.nr.com/licenses New key features: 2 new chapters, 25 new sections, 25% longer than Second Edition thorough upgrades throughout the text Over 100 completely new routines and upgrades of many more.

New Classification and Inference chapter, including Gaussian mixture models, HMMs, hierarchical clustering, Support Vector MachinesNew Computational Geometry chapter covers KD trees, quad- and octrees, Delaunay triangulation, and algorithms for lines, polygons, triangles, and spheres New sections include interior point methods for linear programming, Monte Carlo Markov Chains, spectral and pseudospectral methods for PDEs, and many new statistical distributions.

An expanded treatment of ODEs with completely new routines. Plus comprehensive coverage of linear algebra, interpolation, special functions, random numbers, nonlinear sets of equations, optimisation, eigensystems, Fourier methods and wavelets, statistical tests, ODEs and PDEs, integral equations, and inverse theory And much, much more!

This book/CD bundle of the greatly expanded third edition of Numerical Recipes now has wider coverage than ever before, many new, expanded and updated sections, and two completely new chapters.

  • Most comprehensive book available on scientific computing, now updated
  • Now covers classification and inference HMMs, SVMs, computational geometry, ODEs, MCMC and more
  • Over 600,000 Numerical Recipes products in print.

' ... an essential component of any serious scientific or engineering library.' Computing Reviews ' ... an instant 'classic,' a book that should be purchased and read by anyone who uses numerical methods ...' American Journal of Physics ' ... replete with the standard spectrum of mathematically pretreated and coded/numerical routines for linear equations, matrices and arrays, curves, splines, polynomials, functions, roots, series, integrals, eigenvectors, FFT and other transforms, distributions, statistics, and on to ODE's and PDE's ... delightful.' Physics in Canada ' ... a must for anyone doing scientific computing.' Journal of the American Chemical Society 'The authors are to be congratulated for providing the scientific community with a valuable resource.' The Scientist 'If you were to have only a single book on numerical methods, this is the one I would recommend.' IEEE Computational Science & Engineering
