9780139195235: Java for Engineers and Scientists

For courses in Java Programming Language, and Structured Programming Techniques.

  • From the very beginning, this concise introduction to Java develops and executes practical examples useful for solving problems in an engineering environment. Focused on the proper way to write reliable Java programs, it outlines excellent software development practices; uses a top-down design technique to break the program up into logical portions; and demonstrates object re-usability by building later examples on the classes and methods created in earlier examples. The text makes learning an interactive experience by providing all sources for all examples through a Website.
  • The book also includes a number of supporting classes to make it easier for engineers to format numbers in Java, to display data in linear or logarithmic plots, to work with complex numbers, to manipulate arrays, and to perform such common engineering calculations as FFTs, convolutions, correlations, etc.

From the Back Cover:

From the beginning, this book carefully develops and implements practical examples that demonstrate solving problems with Java in an engineering/science environment. This introductory text exemplifies excellent software development practices. Chapman uses a top-down design technique to show the reader how to create logical program modules. The author demonstrates object re-usability by building later examples on the classes and methods created in earlier examples. Finally, the approach emphasizes how to write reliable Java programs. This book makes learning an interactive experience by providing all sources for all examples through a Website.

  • Leads students or professionals into problem solving without unnecessary Java language details
  • Provides Java class libraries emphasizing the re-usable nature of objects derived from Java classes
  • Provides a set a flexible graphics classes, allowing students to easily display and print graphical data in their programs
  • Provides classes of practical use to Engineers and Scientists, such as classes to format numbers for display, to perform array-based operations, and to perform useful algorithms such as FFTs, correlation, and convolution
  • Includes supplemental material in hard copy and on-line sources
