This book provides twelve computational projects aimed at numerically solving problems from a broad range of applications including Fluid Mechanics, Chemistry, Elasticity, Thermal Science, Computer Aided Design, Signal and Image Processing. For each project the reader is guided through the typical steps of scientific computing from physical and mathematical description of the problem, to numerical formulation and programming and finally to critical discussion of numerical results. Considerable emphasis is placed on practical issues of computational methods. The last section of each project contains the solutions to all proposed exercises and guides the reader in using the MATLAB scripts.

Subject: Mathematics and Statistics, Analysis, MATLAB, Signal, Wavelet, computer-aided design (CAD), finite element method, finite elements, image processing, kinetics, mechanics, model, numerical analysis, optimization, programming, scientific computing
