Compact Numerical Methods for Computers
This second edition of Compact Numerical Methods for Computers presents reliable yet compact algorithms for computational problems. As in the previous edition, the author considers specific mathematical problems of wide applicability, develops approaches to a solution and the consequent algorithm, and provides the program steps. He emphasizes useful applicable methods from various scientific research fields, ranging from mathematical physics to commodity production modeling. While the ubiquitous personal computer is the particular focus, the methods have been implemented on computers as small as a programmable pocket calculator and as large as a highly parallel supercomputer. New to the Second Edition Presents program steps as Turbo Pascal code Includes more algorithmic examples Contains an extended bibliography The accompanying software (available by coupon at no charge) includes not only the algorithm source codes, but also driver programs, example data, and several utility codes to help in the software engineering of end-user programs. The codes are designed for rapid implementation and reliable use in a wide variety of computing environments. Scientists, statisticians, engineers, and economists who prepare/modify programs for use in their work will find this resource invaluable. Moreover, since little previous training in numerical analysis is required, the book can also be used as a supplementary text for courses on numerical methods and mathematical software.
War and an Irish town
War and an Irish Town is Eamonn McCann's classic account of growing up Catholic in a Northern Irish ghetto. McCann paints a vivid picture of the tumultuous early days of the civil rights movement in Northern Ireland, as peaceful protest - driven off the streets - developed into armed insurrection. This new edition - which contains the full text of the original 1974 edition - includes an extended introduction, in which McCann argues (against both nationalist and loyalist orthodoxies) that the ideals that inspired the early movement continue to offer the only way out of the bloody mess of politics in Northern Ireland today.
