Instructors love Numerical Methods for Engineers By Steven C.Chapra because it makes teaching easy! Students love it because it is written for them–with clear explanations and examples throughout. The text features a broad array of applications that span all engineering disciplines. The sixth edition retains the successful instructional techniques of earlier editions. Chapra and Canale’s unique approach opens each part of the text with sections called Motivation, Mathematical Background, and Orientation. This prepares the student for upcoming problems in a motivating and engaging manner. Each part closes with an Epilogue containing Trade-Offs, Important Relationships and Formulae, and Advanced Methods and Additional References. Much more than a summary, the Epilogue deepens understanding of what has been learn ed and provides a peek into more advanced methods. Helpful separate Appendices. “Getting Started with MATLAB” “Getting Started with Math cad” which make excellent references. Numerous new or revised problems drawn from actual engineering practice, many of which are based on exciting new areas such as bio engineering. The expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in the problems, which now cover such areas as biotechnology and bio medical engineering. Excellent new examples and case studies span asll areas of engineering disciplines; the students using this text will be able to apply their new skills to their chosen field. Users will find use of software packages, specifically MATLAB®, Excel® with VBA and Mathcad. This includes material on developing MATLAB m-files and VBA macros.
