About the Authors
  • Modern BASIC programmers will be delighted to learn that the routines and demonstration programs from the highly acclaimed reference book Numerical Recipes: The Art of Scientific Computing are now available in their language of choice. Numerical Recipes, by William H. Press, Brian P. Flannery, Saul A. Teukolsky and William T. Vetterling, is a computing and numerical analysis. It is accompanied by the Numerical Recipes Example Book containing programs that demonstrate the subroutines. Julien C. Sprott has translated all of the recipes and programs, over 350 in all, into BASIC. This book brings the routines and programs together in a single source that includes computer code and code captions from both the book and example book and the commentary from the example book. It is recommended for use with one of the main Numerical Recipes books. The author employs Microsoft QuickBasic 4.5, but the recipes are easily adapted for other modern forms of BASIC. The programs contained in this book are also available as machine-readable code on a 5.1/4 inch floppy diskette for IBM compatible computers.
