Product description

Review

“The book uses programming to impart a deeper understanding of the pragmatic meaning of some of the mathematics most frequently used in engineering and the sciences. … This very good introductory textbook could be used in a variety of courses. A motivated reader with knowledge of calculus could easily use it for self-study. I highly recommend it.” (David Naugler, Computing Reviews, February, 2017)

“This book is intended for novice programmers, especially students, teachers, engineers and scientists from areas related to mathematics and numerical mathematics. … each treated concept is illustrated and explained in detail by means of working examples. On the basis of exercises, the reader is given the opportunity to deepen acquired knowledge. … The clear presentation and the large number of concrete examples, often with a graphical output, make this book ideally suited for self-study and ensures a quick success.” (Stefan Meyer, zbMATH 1350.68003, 2017)
