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The book is outdated due to changes in Matlab.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
