Reseña del editor:

The Student 3rd Edition builds on the popular success of earlier editions to expand the breadth of Practical Numerical Methods with more VBA macros that extend Excel's power for modeling and analysis.

Same Content as 3rd edition - Priced for Students!

Excel is the computational tool most used by practicing engineers and scientists. Use this book to become proficient with VBA programming and boost your worksheets with time saving enhancements and powerful numerical techniques found in specialized applications.

A companion web site has digital files for downloading 300 illustrations, examples, animations, and the refined PNM3Suite workbook with 200 VBA user-defined functions, macros, and user forms for advanced numerical techniques. Practice problems are available for each chapter at the web site ( Example files and macros are ready to be modified by users for their own needs.

Topics include an introduction to modeling, Excel and VBA programming, root-finding for systems of linear and nonlinear equations, eigenproblems, derivative approximation, optimization, experimental uncertainty analysis, least-squares regression and model validation, interpolation, integration, and ordinary & partial differential equations.

The introduction includes a primer on chemical reaction engineering for problems involving mass and energy balances with reactions. The next two chapters cover frequently overlooked features of Excel and VBA for engineering programming to apply numerical methods in Excel, as well as document results. The remaining chapters present powerful numerical techniques using Excel & VBA.
