For problems that require extensive computation, a C++ program can race through
billions of examples faster than most other computing choices. C++ enables
mathematicians of virtually any discipline to create programs to meet their needs
quickly, and is available on most computer systems at no cost. C++ for
Mathematicians: An Introduction for Students and Professionals accentuates C++
concepts that are most valuable for pure and applied mathematical research.
This is the first book available on C++ programming that is written specifically
for a mathematical audience; it omits the language’s more obscure features in
favor of the aspects of greatest utility for mathematical work. The author
explains how to use C++ to formulate conjectures, create images and diagrams,
verify proofs, build mathematical structures, and explore myriad examples.
Emphasizing the essential role of practice as part of the learning process, the
book is ideally designed for undergraduate coursework as well as self-study. Each
chapter provides many problems and solutions which complement the text and enable
you to learn quickly how to apply them to your own problems. An accompanying CD
ROM provides all numbered programs so that readers can easily use or adapt the
code as needed.
