From the Publisher This is the first C-for-scientists-and- engineers text by best-selling FORTRAN author and renowned teacher Delores Etter. This highly accessible book features the widest variety of real-world applications of usable C code -- to solve problems in electrical, computer, mechanical, civil, and environmental engineering, as well as the computer sciences. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover Key Benefit: C is the language of choice of many practicing engineers and scientists who use computers to solve a variety of problems ranging from the evaluation of a simple function to solving a system of non-linear equations. Focusing on five major engineering/scientific applications as examples, this volume presents a design process for solving engineering problems, and then develops corresponding solutions using ANSI C. Key Topics: Considers the fundamental topics of control structures, functions, arrays, character strings, pointers, and dynamic memory allocation; presents a top-down, stepwise refined, five-step process for solving engineering and scientific problems, with emphasis on readability and documentation in the development of programs; discusses numerical techniques that are commonly used in solving engineering problems; and develops a complete C program using the five-step process. The real-world engineering and scientific examples and problems center around a theme of grand challenges -- prediction of weather, climate, and global change; computerized speech understanding; mapping of the human genome; improvements in vehicle performance; and enhanced oil and gas recovery. An accompanying diskette contains all the example programs and data files used in the book. Market: For engineers and scientists who want to use ANSI C to solve practical engineering and scientific problems. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
