At last researchers have an inexpensive library of Java-based numeric procedures for use in scientific computation. The first and only book of its kind, A Numeric Library in Java for Scientists and Engineers is a translation into Java of the library NUMAL (NUMerical procedures in ALgol 60). This groundbreaking text presents procedural descriptions for linear algebra, ordinary and partial differential equations, optimization, parameter estimation, mathematical physics, and other tools that are indispensable to any dynamic research group. The book offers test programs that allow researchers to execute the examples provided; users are free to construct their own tests and apply the numeric procedures to them in order to observe a successful computation or simulate failure. The entry for each procedure is logically presented, with name, usage parameters, and Java code included. This handbook serves as a powerful research tool, enabling the performance of critical computations in Java. It stands as a cost-efficient alternative to expensive commercial software package of procedural components.

Introductory Java for Scientists and Engineers provides an accessible and thorough introduction to Java for science and engineering students. The first part takes the reader gradually through the language features, standard libraries and object-orientation. The second part moves on to discuss libraries for scientific graphics and numerics and contains chapters introducing software engineering, physical modelling and more serious numerical algorithms. Unlike most other books on Java, discussion is not dominated by writing user interface code, and all of the examples perform the kind of computations that will be of interest to a scientific programmer.

"Building on his highly successful textbook on C++, David Yevick provides a concise yet comprehensive one-stop course in three key programming languages, C++, Java and Octave (a freeware alternative to MATLAB). Employing only public-domain software to ensure straightforward implementation for all readers, this book presents a unique overview of numerical and programming techniques relevant to scientific programming, including object-oriented programming, elementary and advanced topics in numerical analysis, physical system modeling, scientific graphics, software engineering and performance issues. Relevant features of each programming language are illustrated with short, incisive examples, and the installation and application of the software is describedin detail. Compact, transparent code in all three programming languages is applied to the fundamental equations of quantum mechanics, electromagnetics, mechanics and statistical mechanics. Uncommented versions of the code that can be immediately modifiedand adapted are provided online for the more involved programs. This compact, practical text is an invaluable introduction for students in all undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in the physical sciences or engineering that require numerical modeling, and also a key reference for instructors and scientific programmers"--

Advanced Java for Engineers and Scientists gives the reader all the information needed to use Java to create powerful, versatile, and flexible scientific and engineering applications. The book is full of practical example problems and valuable tips. Grant Palmer, a research scientist himself, goes in-depth into advanced technical programming concepts applicable to scientific-oriented applications, such as solving differential equations, data modeling, integration of functions, and creating generic class libraries. The last section of the book shows readers how Java can be used to develop GUI or Web-based front-ends to scientific or engineering programs.

Object oriented Implementation of Numerical Methods

Numerical methods naturally lend themselves to an object-oriented approach. Mathematics builds high- level ideas on top of previously described, simpler ones. Once a property is demonstrated for a given concept, it can be applied to any new concept sharing the same premise as the original one, similar to the ideas of reuse and inheritance in object-oriented (OO) methodology. Few books on numerical methods teach developers much about designing and building good code. Good computing routines are problem-specific. Insight and understanding are what is needed, rather than just recipes and black box routines. Developers need the ability to construct new programs for different applications. Object-Oriented Implementation of Numerical Methods reveals a complete OO design methodology in a clear and systematic way. Each method is presented in a consistent format, beginning with a short explanation and following with a description of the general OO architecture for the algorithm. Next, the code implementations are discussed and presented along with real-world examples that the author, an experienced software engineer, has used in a variety of commercial applications. On the enclosed CD-ROM, you'll find files containing tested source code implementations of all the algorithms discussed in the book in both Java and Smalltalk. This includes repository files for VisualAge for Java and VisualAge for Smalltalk under ENVY. * Reveals the design methodology behind the code, including design patterns where appropriate, rather than just presenting canned solutions. * Implements all methods side by side in both Java and Smalltalk. This contrast can significantly enhance your understanding of the nature of OO programming languages. * Provides a step-by-step pathway to new object-oriented techniques for programmers familiar with using procedural languages such as C or Fortran for numerical methods. * Includes a chapter on data mining, a key application of numerical methods.
