Written especially for scientists, engineers and mathematicians, this book has been extensively updated and revised to conform to 1998 ANSI/ISO C++ Standard and include all the recent developments in C++ such as:
- STL (Standard Template Library)
- Exception Handling
- Templates and Streams.
No knowledge of programming is assumed. This book is as much for the beginner in programming as it is for the newcomer to C++, although readers are expected to have some acquaintance with computers and text editors.
Plenty of relevant examples are included throughout the book, most of which are slanted towards numerical applications, and it is this bias that makes this book unique in its field and of particular interest to those who have to work with figures.
