Numerical Methods For Scientists And Engineers, 2nd Edition
- In an introductory chapter on numerical methods and their relevance to computing, well-known mathematician Richard Hamming (“the Hamming code,” “the Hamming distance,” and “Hamming window,” etc.), suggests that the purpose of computing is insight, not merely numbers.
- In that connection he outlines five main ideas that aim at producing meaningful numbers that will be read and used, but will also lead to greater understanding of how the choice of a particular formula or algorithm influences not only the computing but our understanding of the results obtained.
