Book: Essential C++ for Engineers and Scientists (2nd Edition)
Publisher: Addison Wesley
Essential C++ for Engineers and Scientists zeros in on the key elements of good programming and C++, using a multitude of interesting and appropriate engineering and scientific examples. This book covers the features of C++ needed for writing engineering programs, including many features of object-oriented programming. Early on, the book makes some simplifying assumptions that allow the use of C++ topics without lengthy explanation, and then later discusses the intricacies of the features. Readers will come away with the confidence needed to solve problems with C++. This book covers the essential features of C++, including control structures, one-dimensional and multidimensional arrays, and file manipulation. It contains over 80 engineering and scientific examples and programming projects drawn from interesting areas such as solar heating, environmentally sound power production, water conservation, automated manufacturing, and pipeline and power grid modeling. The new edition includes material on member operators and more coverage of member functions, as well as expanded coverage of files. Two new case studies demonstrate full algorithm development. All code has been updated to comply with ANSI C++ Standard. An appendix on C is also included for readers who want to use this language. This book is especially appropriate for engineers (but also for scientists, mathematicians, etc.) with no prior programming experience looking for an introduction to C++, focusing on the features of the language that can be applied to their industry.
