Applied Numerical Methods Using MATLAB

Author: Won Y. Yang
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9780471705185
Release Date: 2005-06-03
Genre: Mathematics

In recent years, with the introduction of new media products, there has been a shift in the use of programming languages from FORTRAN or C to MATLAB for implementing numerical methods. This book makes use of the powerful MATLAB software to avoid complex derivations, and to teach the fundamental concepts using the software to solve practical problems. Over the years, many textbooks have been written on the subject of numerical methods. Based on their course experience, the authors use a more practical approach and link every method to real engineering and/or science problems. The main benefit is that engineers don't have to know the mathematical theory in order to apply the numerical methods for solving their real-life problems. An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available online.

Release Date: 2011
Genre: Mathematics

NUMERICAL METHODS IN ENGINEERING: Theories with MATLAB, Fortran, C and Pascal Programs presents a clear, easy-to-understand manner on introduction and the use of numerical methods. The book contains nine chapters with materials that are essential for studying the subject. The book starts from introducing the numerical methods and describing their importance for analyzing engineering problems. The methods for finding roots of linear and nonlinear equations are presented with examples. Some of these methods are very effective and implemented in commercial software. The methods for interpolation, extrapolation and least-squares regression are explained. Numerical integration and differentiation methods are presented to demonstrate their benefits for solving complicate functions. Several methods for analyzing both the ordinary and partial differential equations are then presented. These methods are simple and work well for problems that have regular geometry. For problems with complex geometry, the finite element method is preferred. The finite element method for analyzing one- and two- dimensional problems is explained in the last chapter. Numerous examples are illustrated to increase understanding of these methods for analyzing different types of problems. Computer programs corresponding to the computational procedures of these methods are provided. The programs are written in MATLAB, Fortran, C and Pascal, so that readers can use the preferred language for their study. These computer programs can also be modified to use in other courses and research work.

Numerical Analysis and Graphic Visualization with MATLAB

Author: Shoichiro Nakamura
Publisher: Prentice Hall
ISBN: 0130654892
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Computers

PREFACE WHAT THIS BOOK DESCRIBES This book is intended to introduce numerical analysis and graphic visualization using MATLAB to college students majoring in engineering and science.It can also be a handbook of MATLAB applications for professional engi-neers and scientists. The goal is not to teach the mathematics of numericalanalysis, but rather to teach the knowledge and skills of solving equationsand presenting them graphically so that readers can easily handle equationsand results of the computations. With its unique and fascinating capabilities, MATLAB has changed theconcept of programming for numerical and mathematical analyses. Therefore, MATLAB is a superb vehicle to achieve our goal. This book fullyimplements the mathematical and graphic tools in the most recent versionof MATLAB. The following four fundamental elements are integrated in this book: (1)programming in MATLAB, (2) mathematical basics of numerical analysis,(3) application of numerical methods to engineering, scientific, and mathematical problems, and (4) scientific graphics with MATLAB. The first two chapters are comprehensive tutorials of MATLAB commands and graphic tools, particularly for the beginner or entry-level collegestudent. Indeed, these two chapters have been most significantly enhancedin this edition compared to the first edition. In Chapter 1, understandingand developing programming skills on MATLAB are emphasized particularlybecause, unless the reader has knowledge and experience with another pro-gramming language, these are tough hurdles for the beginner to overcome.To acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to read the rest of the book,solving the problems at the end of each chapter is very important. Chapter 2 starts out with the elements of graphics on MATLAB, whichis easy to follow. Yet, toward the end of the chapter, three-dimensionalgraphics on the professional level are achieved. Not only is the programmingtechnique of plotting functions mentioned, but also skills of presenting mathematical and scientific material using graphics are developed throughout thechapter. The graphics knowledge acquired in this chapter are foundationsin learning and applying the numerical methods described in the remainderof the book. Again, practice on the computer is important. Some studentstry to memorize scripts without understanding why and how they work,but such an effort is utterly meaningless. More important is to play with afew new commands, understand how they work and how they may fail, andfinally become a master of the commands. Chapters 3 through 11 cover numerical methods and their implementations with MATLAB. All the numerical methods described are illustratedwith applications on MATLAB. Appendices describe special topics, including advanced three-dimensional graphics with colors, motion pictures, imageprocessing, and graphical user interface. Readers should feel free to use thescripts in this book in any way desired. However, the beginning studentsare advised not to u se these scripts blindly. The students should write theirown scripts. Using the lists of the scripts and function, readers can run most examples and figures on their own computers. The m-files of the scripts can bedownloaded as mentioned later. WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT MATLAB? MATLAB may be regarded as a programming language like Fortran or C,although describing it in a few words is difficult. Some of its outstandingfeatures for numerical analyses, however, are: Significantly simpler programming Continuity among integer, real, and complex values Extended range of numbers and their accuracy A comprehensive mathematical library Extensive graphic tools including graphic user interface functions Capability of linking with traditional programming languages Transportability of MATLAB programs An extraordinary feature of MATLAB is that there is no distinction amongreal, complex, and integer numbers. All numbers are in double precision. InMATLAB, all kinds of numbers are continuously connected, as they should be. It means that in MATLAB, any variable can take any type of numberwithout special declaration in programming. This makes programming fasterand more productive. In Fortran, a different subroutine is necessary for eachsingle, double, real or complex, or integer variable, while in MATLAB thereis no need to separate them. The mathematical library in MATLAB makes mathematical analyseseasy. Yet the user can develop additional mathematical routines significantlymore easily than in other programming languages because of the continuitybetween real and complex variables. Among numerous mathematical functions, linear algebra solvers play central roles. Indeed, the whole MATLABsystem is founded upon linear algebra solvers. IMPORTANCE OF GRAPHICS Graphic presentation of mathematical analysis helps the reader to under-stand mathematics and makes it enjoyable. Although this advantage hasbeen well known, presenting computed results with computer graphics wasnot without substantial extra effort in the past. With MATLAB, however,graphic presentations of mathematical material is possible with just a fewcommands. Scientific and even artistic graphic objects can be created on thescreen using mathematical expressions. It has been found that MATLABgraphics motivate and excite students to learn mathematical and numericalmethods that could otherwise be dull. MATLAB graphics are easy and great fun for readers. This book alsoillustrates image processing and production of motion pictures for scientific computing as well as for artistic or hobby material. WILL MATLAB ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR FORTRAN OR C? The answer is no. Fortran and C are still important for high-performancecomputing that requires a large memory or long computing time. The speedof MATLAB computation is significantly slower than that with Fortran orC because MATLAB is paying the high price for the nice features. Learn-ing Fortran or C, however, is not a prerequisite for understanding MATLAB. REFERENCE BOOKS THAT ARE HELPFUL TO LEARN MATLAB This book explains many MATLAB commands but is not intended to be acomplete guide to MATLAB. Readers interested in further information onMATLAB are advised to read User's Guide and Reference Guide. Also, youshould know that over 400 books for use with MATLAB, Simulink, Tool-boxes, and Blocksets have been written.
