"QuickBASIC Programming for Scientists and Engineers" teaches computer programming from the ground up with Microsoft QuickBASIC, a modern, fast, easy-to-learn programming language. Examples used throughout this book are useful for students and professionals in chemistry, physics, and engineering. This book covers the basics and then proceeds to more sophisticated programs using a disk (enclosed with the book) containing pretested procedures for important operations such as graphing (screen, printers, plotters); data entry/edit/save/retrieve; file management; linear regression; nonlinear regression; cubic spline interpolation; Romberg integration; differential equations; and, Fourier transform.With these routines, you get many of the advantages of a spreadsheet, but with a simpler, more powerful programming language. "QuickBASIC Programming for Scientists and Engineers" shows you what these routines do and how to use them effectively. Because this book provides the source code, you can even customize these routines to suit your specific needs. The modules disk runs on any IBMA[copyright] or compatible microcomputer with a graphics board, 640K RAM, DOS 3.0 or higher, and a copy of Microsoft QuickBASIC (version 4.
0 or higher). The book is perfect for any scientist or engineering professional who needs to learn QuickBASIC programming quickly and easily.
