About this title


Here is a work which will be of value to anyone who is interested in or has contact with digital computers. For such a reader the book offers: -mathematical analyses and derivation of commonly used techniques of digital computation -detailed, step-by-step discussion of the actual processing of complex mathematical and physical problems It is, in fact, the first book to show clearly the interrelation between analysis of the problem, computer capabilities and limitations, and coding procedures. Each chapter of the book has been contributed by a man in close contact with the latest developments in his field- and each deals with an important and representative mathematical problem. In each case, the chapters follow a standard format- giving in order the purpose of the program under consideration, the calculation procedures to be used, a detailed flow chart, the memory requirements, an estimate of running time, and a list of references. Actual coding is not included in the book, since it would involve specific types of machines.
