Reseña del editor
This latest edition expands Practical Numerical Methods with more VBA to boost Excel's power for modeling and analysis using the same numerical techniques found in more specialized math software. Visit the companion web site:
to access all of the book's Excel and VBA files, and learn how to customize your own Excel workbooks with:
- A refined macro-enabled Excel workbook with a suite of over 170 VBA user-defined functions, macros and user-forms for learning VBA and implementing advanced numerical techniques in Excel.
- More than 200 example and animation workbook files from the book that demonstrate the power of numerical methods. Customize the example files and macros to tackle your own problems using VBA in Excel.
- Hundreds of practice problems for self-guided study to sharpen your Excel and VBA skills.
The first chapter sets the stage for problem solving with numerical methods. The next two chapters cover frequently overlooked features of Excel and VBA for implementing numerical methods in Excel, as well as documenting results. The remaining chapters present powerful numerical techniques using Excel and VBA to find roots to algebraic equations, approximate derivatives, optimize, model data by least-squares regression and interpolation, analyze risk and uncertainty, solve integrals & ordinary & partial differential equations:
