Numerical Methods in Engineering with Python 3, 3rd Edition

Book Description

This book is an introduction to numerical methods for students in engineering. It covers the usual topics found in an engineering course: solution of equations, interpolation and data fitting, solution of differential equations, eigenvalue problems, and optimization. The algorithms are implemented in 3, a high-level language that rivals MATLABĀ® in readability and ease of use. All methods include programs showing how the computer is utilized in the solution of problems. The book is based on Numerical Methods in Engineering with Python, which used Python 2. This new text demonstrates the use of Python 3 and includes an introduction to the Python plotting package Matplotlib. This comprehensive book is enhanced by the addition of numerous examples and problems throughout.
