About the Authors
  • This book/CD bundle of the greatly expanded third edition of Numerical Recipes now has wider coverage than ever before, many new, expanded and updated sections, and two completely new chapters. Co-authored by four leading scientists from academia and industry, Numerical Recipes starts with basic mathematics and computer science and proceeds to complete, working routines. The informal, easy-to-read style that made earlier editions so popular is kept throughout. Highlights of the new material include: a new chapter on classification and inference, Gaussian mixture models, HMMs, hierarchical clustering, and SVMs; a new chapter on computational geometry, covering KD trees, quad- and octrees, Delaunay triangulation, and algorithms for lines, polygons, triangles, and spheres; interior point methods for linear programming; MCMC; an expanded treatment of ODEs with completely new routines; and many new statistical distributions.
