Numerical Analysis:
Mathematics of Scientific Computing, Third Edition

Sample Computer Codes

Files are available based on the pseudocode in the textbook written in a variety of programming languages such as Fortran and C as well as Matlab and Mathematica.

The sample programs are intended primarily as a learning and teaching aid for use with this book. We believe that these computer routines are coded in a clear and easy-to-understand style, but we have intentionally excluded comment statements so that students will read the code and study the algorithms; they can add comments as they decipher them. These programs are usable on computer systems with appropriate compilers, from small personal computers to large scientific computing machines. However, they do not contain all of the "bells-and-whistles" of robust state-of-the-art software such as may be found in general-purpose scientific libraries. Nevertheless, they are adequate for many small non-pathological problems.
