Numerical Methods for Scientific Computing By Kyle Novak
Paperback: List Price: $22.00 $11.00 | You Save: 50%
Prints in 3-5 business days
Scientists and engineers often use algorithms without fully knowing what's happening inside them. This blind faith can lead to inefficient solutions and sometimes flat-out wrong ones. This book... More > breaks open the algorithmic black boxes to help you understand how they work and why they can break down. Ideal for first-year graduate students, this book works to build both the intuitive understanding of underlying mathematical theory and useful skills for research. Examples worked out in detail provide a practical guide for using numerical methods in linear algebra, numerical analysis, and partial differential equations.< Less

Computational Physics - A Practical Introduction to Computational Physics and Scientific Computing (using C++), Vol. I By Konstantinos Anagnostopoulos
Paperback: List Price: $33.00 $19.80 | You Save: 40%
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book is an introduction to the computational methods used in physics and other related scientific fields. It is addressed to an audience that has already been exposed to the introductory level... More > of college physics, usually taught during the first two years of an undergraduate program in science and engineering. It assumes no prior knowledge of numerical analysis, programming or computers and teaches whatever is necessary for the solution of the problems addressed in the text. C++ is used for programming the core programs and data analysis is performed using the powerful tools of the GNU/Linux environment. All the necessary software is open source and freely available. The book starts with very simple problems in particle motion and ends with an in-depth discussion of advanced techniques used in Monte Carlo simulations in statistical mechanics. The level of instruction rises slowly, while discussing problems like the diffusion equation, electrostatics on the plane, quantum mechanics and random walks.< Less

Merrimac -- High-Performance and Highly-Efficient Scientific Computing with Streams By Mattan Erez
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Stanford Ph.D. Dissertation: Advances in VLSI technology have made the raw ingredients for computation plentiful. Large numbers of fast functional units and large amounts of memory and bandwidth can... More > be made efficient in terms of chip area, cost, and energy, however, high-performance computers realize only a small fraction of VLSI's potential. This dissertation describes the Merrimac streaming supercomputer architecture and system. Merrimac has an integrated view of the applications, software system, compiler, and architecture. We will show how this approach leads to over an order of magnitude gains in performance per unit cost, unit power, and unit floor-space for scientific applications when compared to common scientific computers designed around clusters of commodity general-purpose processors. The dissertation discusses Merrimac's stream architecture, the mapping of scientific codes to effectively run on the stream architecture, and system issues in the Merrimac supercomputer.< Less
An Object Oriented Approach to Compiler Design with Applications in Scientific Computation By Jack Martin
Paperback: $99.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book introduces an object oriented approach to compiler design and scientific computation. The main purpose of the book is to introduce safe mathematical data types for mathematical... More > computation. Some of the most important types developed are expanded real number data types, fixed point data types for C++ style languages, and interval data types. Much of the analysis contained herein deals with the interval data type. The book also gives a fully detailed description of a C++ style language with emphasis on mathematical calculations to be used in the sciences. The idea is to create a user friendly third generation language that would allow for safe computation. This would allow scientists and engineers to focus on the correctness of their algorithms, rather than the nuances of the data types themselves.< Less
