Cool book on numerical techniques


Recommended Posts

Matters Computational: Ideas, Algorithms, Source Code



I found a link to this file while looking through the Atari 2600 programming section. It's a Creative Commons licensed book written by Jorg Arndt giving a brief overview of a huge swath of numerical techniques and theory.


This starts with a ton of bit manipulation tricks, then moves into sorting, data structures, graph analysis, and permutations. The author wades deep into number theory with plenty of examples. Each section builds on the one before, so readers shouldn't feel overwhelmed. There is corresponding C code for most topics discussed and an extensive set of references.


It's about a thousand pages of math-y goodness, and serves as a great starting point for more in-depth research. There's a section titled "Multiplication of Hypercomplex Numbers", for crying out loud. what's not to love?
