Summary
The computational demands of modern-day simulation software needed across a range of diverse scientific disciplines lead many programmers to write their code in an object-oriented language such as C++.This easy-to-read textbook/reference presents an essential guide to object-oriented C++ programming for scientific computing. With a practical focus on learning by example, the theory is supported by numerous exercises. Features of both the C++ language and standard libraries are highlighted via the development of classes of vectors and matrices, allowing demonstration of key concepts. The text then explains how these classes can be adapted for parallel computing, before demonstrating how a flexible, extensible library can be written for the numerical solution of differential equations.Topics and features:Provides a specific focus on the application of C++ to scientific computing, including parallel computing using MPIStresses the importance of a clear programming style to minimize the introduction of errors into codePresents a practical introduction to procedural programming in C++, covering variables, flow of control, input and output, pointers, functions, and reference variablesExhibits the efficacy of classes, highlighting the main features of object-orientationExamines more advanced C++ features, such as templates and exceptionsSupplies useful tips and examples throughout the text, together with chapter-ending exercises, and code available to download from http://www.springer.com/978-1-4471-2735-2This clearly written textbook is a "must-read" for programmers of all levels of expertise. Basic familiarity with concepts such as operations between vectors and matrices, and the Newton-Raphson method for finding the roots of non-linear equations, would be an advantage, but extensive knowledge of the underlying mathematics is not assumed
