# Solving Problems in Scientific Computing

Using MAPLE and MATLAB^{®}

## Fourth Edition

This is the WEB page of the book "Solving Problems Using MAPLE and
MATLAB", (see Springer Verlag) which is a pioneering and
well known book describing how to use computer algebra and numerical
computing software packages for solving various mathematical,
technical, economic and physical problems. In each chapter of the book we
describe, analyze and solve one problem. Chapter 1 is available as an example.

The book is the result of a Swiss-Czech cooperation which started in 1991. The
first edition of this book was printed in 1993 (see the history of the book).
The editors are also authors or co-authors of several chapters and the whole book
could not have been done without a close co-operation with the other authors from four countries
to keep the style coherent.
You can find the list
of authors on the Authors Page.

The MATLAB and MAPLE programs which are used for the solution
are available on the Download Page.

Since software systems change in time we always adapted our codes when
we published a new edition. The newest version of the programs are
the ones for the fourth edition written in 2003 and published in 2004.

Beside the table of content, we present an overview of the chapters
and their abstracts on the Chapters Page. There are also
links to the related downloads.

Our Download Page is sorted with respect to chapters. There are all
source codes in MAPLE and MATLAB solving the problems described in the
chapters. Each chapter contains also the README file with the
description of the contents of each file and also how to run it.

If you are interested in MAPLE, MATLAB or other information on this
topic then look at our Links Page. Please tell us other useful links
that we are not aware of. We will try to keep this page up-to-date.
