Numerical Methods for Electrical and Computer Engineers

This document introduces numerical methods (to be implemented on a computer) and their application to engineering problems. It contains many examples and their application using both Matlab and Maple.

Book Excerpts:

This document serves as the textbook of the Numerical Methods course for undergraduate students at Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo.

The course introduces numerical methods (to be implemented on a computer) and their application to engineering problems. It covers number systems, errors and error propagation, linear algebra and solving linear systems of equations, finding roots of nonlinear equations, an introduction to optimization, interpolation and regression, numerical integration and differentiation and an introduction to numerical solutions of initial-value problems (IVPs) of ordinary differential equations (ODE).

Each topic covered contains several sub-topics which include an introduction, lecture notes, basic theory, HOWTO, several examples, known applications, error rates, questions, and finally both Matlab and Maple code for the implementation, should there is a support from both tools.

Douglas Wilhelm Harder wrote:This online text was written during the during the Fall 2005 semester while the author was teaching the course ECE 204 Numerical Methods for Computer Engineers. As so many text books cost well over $100 these days, I felt it was necessary to start making availble a free online text which is as good as any paper text you may consider purchasing. You are free to download a copy for yourself for personal use.
