“Gil Strang has given the discipline of computational science and engineering its first testament in this new and comprehensive book. It surely extends Gil's long tradition of practical, wideranging, and insightful books that are invaluable for students, teachers, and researchers alike. If you could have only one book on a desert island, this might be it.”
— William Briggs, Professor of Mathematics at University of Colorado at Denver, and SIAM VicePresident for Education.
This book presents the full range of computational science and engineering  the equations, numerical methods, and algorithms with MATLAB® codes. The author has taught this material to thousands of engineers and scientists. The book is solutionbased and not formulabased: it covers applied linear algebra and fast solvers, differential equations with finite differences and finite elements, Fourier analysis, optimization, and more.
