PASCAL for Science and Engineering - James J. McGregor & Alan H. WattPitman, 1983, Paperback.
Condition: Very Good.
First in this, paperback, edition.
From the cover: “Every scientist and engineer must obtain some familiarity with the use of computers, and their applications to his/her subject area. This book teaches the reader how to write programs in Pascal, which scientists and engineers have found increasingly valuable since the advent of the microcomputer: apart from the advantages of readability and error protection, programs written in Pascal are efficient.
The authors present a genuinely introductory text for beginners. They avoid unnecessary jargon, and do not present more information than is absolutely necessary about the internal operation of the computer. They introduce the elementary techniques by means of examples, and encourage the reader to develop a good programming style by attempting the exercises set in each chapter.
The book is written in two parts. The first part is a self-contained introduction to Pascal. The second part examines the computer applications that are of interest to the scientist and engineer.”
