About the Authors
  • This version of the first edition of Numerical Recipes contains the original 200 routines translated into Pascal along with the tutorial text. In a single volume, Numerical Recipes in Pascal provides lucid, easy-to-read discussions of the most important practical numerical techniques for science and engineering. The programs contained in this book are also available as machine-readable code on the Numerical Recipes Code CD-ROM with Windows/Macintosh Single Screen License.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book is indispensable to anyone who wishes to employ numerical techniques quickly and confidently without becoming an expert in applied mathematics." Journal of Nuclear Medicine

    "Anyone who is numerate will read it with profit; anyone who is literate will read it with satisfaction; and anyone who has a sense of humor will read it with real enjoyment." Observatory

    "Truly impressive is the insight the authors offer throughout into various aspects of the numerical methods presented." Physics Today

    "There is no way that this review can even begin to convey the truly immense amount of material that is in this book." Technometrics

    "Splendid text and reference on the art of scientific programming. As a sourcebook of important algorithms and their background information, proceeds effortlessly from the math and theory to the over 200 practical Pascal routines." Computer Book Review

    "It really still remains a gold mine for those who need ready solutions to computing problems...You might well ask, 'do we really need another version whose text is unchanged but where the algorithms are presented in Pascal rather than in FORTRAN?' The answer is 'yes' if you, like me, are a Pascal programmer." Geological Magazine

    "...a 'toolbox' for people in the sciences and engineering who frequently work with numbers." American Scientist

    "I would recommend this text, or any of the series, to scientific programmers." Physics in Canada

    "The book's virtues are that it lists important topics from numerical analysis that may be of interest to scientists and engineers. It gives a summary of the philosophy behind each of the methods discussed and a bibliography so that one can find out more." Computing Reviews

    "This is a phenomenal effort. Virtually anyone involved in scientific computing, from engineers, to physicists, to social scientists, will find information and methods applicable to their specific needs, or helpful subroutines that can be inserted into the reader's existing programs....No matter what language you program in, these packages are classics, both as a textbook or reference. They are an essential and valuable addition to the academic, professional, or personal library." Internet
