Product Description

The eighth edition of Chapra and Canale’s Numerical Methods for Engineers retains the instructional techniques that have made the text so successful. The book covers the standard numerical methods employed by both students and practicing engineers. Although relevant theory is covered, the primary emphasis is on how the methods are applied for engineering problem solving. Each part of the book includes a chapter devoted to case studies from the major engineering disciplines. Numerous new or revised end-of chapter problems and case studies are drawn from actual engineering practice. This edition also includes several new topics including a new formulation for cubic splines, Monte Carlo integration, and supplementary material on hyperbolic partial differential equations.
