About this product

Please note: this software was written and designed before 64-bit operating systems (OS) were introduced. If you are running a 64-bit OS, such as a 64-bit version of Windows Vista or Windows 7, this software may not function. Please note that suppliers do not accept returns of sealed software that has been opened, and NHBS can therefore not refund such items. If in doubt, please contact customer services or the software supplier to enquire after compatibility before purchasing this item.

Do you want reliable code for the latest methods in scientific computing? This CD-ROM contains all the source code from the new, and all previous, editions and language versions of Numerical Recipes. Included are: Numerical Recipes, Third Edition: complete source code in C++, with many brand-new routines Numerical Recipes, Second Edition: complete source code in C, Fortran 77, and Fortran 90 Numerical Recipes, First Edition: complete source code in Pascal and BASIC plus third-party ports of the code to Modula 2 and Common Lisp The CDROM also features an archive of difficult-to-find historical materials, including Baker's C Tools and More C Tools, Lau's Numerical Library in C for Scientists and Engineers, the influential NUMAL Algol 60 library from the Mathematisch Centrum in Amsterdam, and more than 250 MB of physically generated and multiply encrypted random bytes. Compatible with all computers and operating systems, the CDROM includes a Personal Single-User License that allows an individual to use the copyrighted code on any number of computers (no more than one at a time).

"[...] an essential component of any serious scientific or engineering library."
- Computing Reviews

"[...] an instant 'classic,' a book that should be purchased and read by anyone who uses numerical methods [...]"
- American Journal of Physics

"[...] replete with the standard spectrum of mathematically pretreated and coded/numerical routines for linear equations, matrices and arrays, curves, splines, polynomials, functions, roots, series, integrals, eigenvectors, FFT and other transforms, distributions, statistics, and on to ODE's and PDE's [...] delightful."
- Physics in Canada

"[...] a must for anyone doing scientific computing."
- Journal of the American Chemical Society

"The authors are to be congratulated for providing the scientific community with a valuable resource."
- The Scientist

"If you were to have only a single book on numerical methods, this is the one I would recommend."
- IEEE Computational Science & Engineering
