This second edition replaces Solving PDEs in C++: Numerical Methods in a Unified Object-Oriented Approach (CS01, 978-0-898716-01-6), which is no longer available.
Computational Science and Engineering 09
In this much-expanded second edition, author Yair Shapira presents new applications and a substantial extension of the original object-oriented framework to make this popular and comprehensive book even easier to understand and use. It not only introduces the C and C++ programming languages, but also shows how to use them in the numerical solution of partial differential equations (PDEs). The complete code is available and explained in detail in the text or the appendix, tested on GNU, and easily adapted to other compilers as well.
New material in this edition includes
• new chapters on 3-D nonlinear applications and image processing applications;
• new sections on cryptography applications; and
• even more new sections, many including additional algorithms.
The book leads readers through the entire solution process, from the original PDE, through the discretization stage, to the numerical solution of the resulting algebraic system. The high level of abstraction available in C++ is particularly useful in the implementation of complex mathematical objects, such as unstructured mesh, sparse matrix, and multigrid hierarchy, often used in numerical modeling. The well-debugged and tested code segments implement the numerical methods efficiently and transparently in a unified object-oriented approach.
The book is written for researchers, engineers, and advanced students who wish to increase their familiarity with numerical methods and to implement them using modern programming tools. Solving PDEs in C++ can be used as a textbook in courses in C++ with applications, C++ in engineering, numerical analysis, and numerical PDEs at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels. Because it is self-contained, the book is also suitable for self-study by researchers and students in applied and computational science and engineering.
