Introduction to Computational Modeling Using C and Open-Source Tools

Book Description

Introduction to Computational Modeling Using C and Open-Source Tools presents the fundamental of computational models from a computer science perspective. It explains how to implement these models using the C language. The software tools used in the book include the Gnu Scientific Library (GSL), which is a free software library of C functions, and the versatile, open-source GnuPlot for visualizing the data. All source files, shell scripts, and additional notes are located at science.kennesaw.edu/~jgarrido/comp_models

The book first presents an overview of problem solving and the introductory concepts, principles, and development of computational models before covering the programming principles of the C . The author then applies programming principles and basic numerical techniques, such as polynomial evaluation, regression, and other numerical methods, to implement computational models. He also discusses more advanced concepts needed for modeling dynamical systems and explains how to generate numerical solutions. The book concludes with the modeling of linear optimization problems.

Emphasizing analytical skill development and problem solving, this book helps you understand how to reason about and conceptualize the problems, generate mathematical formulations, and computationally visualize and solve the problems. It provides you with the foundation to understand more advanced scientific computing, including parallel computing using MPI, grid computing, and other techniques in high- computing.
