Excel for Scientists and Engineers is an essential sourcebook for implementing advanced numerical methods supplied in Excel for Windows 95 and Excel 5 for Windows 3.1 and Mac. Use Excel to perform all levels of numerical analysis. Each detailed example explains the numerical method used and how to implement it in Excel. You'll learn to prepare single-input and multi-input engineering tables, and create function calculators for painless 'what-if' analysis; use Excel's built-in curve-fitting functions, from linear curve-fitting to linear regression, polynomial regression, and non-linear curve-fitting; employ popular integration functions, including the rectangle rule, the trapezoid rule, Simpson's rule, and Gaussian quadratures; use Excel's new distribution and statistical functions, plus Bessel, error, and delta functions; solve ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations by combining Excel's features in new ways; and create your own functions with Visual Basic for Applications. Here's a complete sourcebook of numerical methods implemented in Excel. Learn how Excel can simplify all levels of numerical analysis, including those traditionally prepared in high-level programming languages. The companion disk includes all examples and solutions to review problems. Great for students of science and engineering, too!
