Introduction to Scientific Computing

*A Matrix-Vector Approach Using Matlab*

Charles Van Loan

The publisher has kindly given permission to put the book on line. For details about the original text, click here.

The book is outdated due to changes in Matlab. To address this problem I have updated the chapters that are relevant to CS 4210:

Chapter 1 | An introduction to Matlab using scientific computing themes |

Chapter 2 | Polynomial interpolation |

Chapter 3 | Piecewise polynomial interpolation including splines |

Chapter 4 | Numerical integration |

Chapter 9 | The initial value problem |

You can get a single pdf of Chapters 1,2,3,4, and 9 if you want.

Here is a zip file of all the Matlab codes associated with Chapters 1,2,3,4, and 9.

The other chapters are not updated yet to reflect the latest version of Matlab. But here they are:

Chapter 5 | Matrix computations |

Chapter 6 | Linear systems |

Chapter 7 | The QR and Cholesky factorizations |

Chapter 8 | Nonlinear equations and optimization |
