--A great companion book including interactive software for students and professional engineers who want to utilize problem solving software to effectively and efficiently obtain solutions to realistic and complex problems.

--An invaluable reference book that discusses and illustrates practical numerical problem solving in the core subject areas of Chemical Engineering.

This book provides an extensive selection of problems that require numerical solutions from throughout the core subject areas of chemical engineering. Many are completely solved or partially solved using POLYMATH as the representative mathematical problem-solving software.

Practical numerical analysis techniques discussed and applied include: Topical areas are organized by chapter: All problems are clearly organized and all necessary data are provided. Key equations are presented or derived. Practical aspects of efficient and effective numerical problem solving are emphasized. Many complete solutions are provided within the text and on the CD-ROM for use in problem-solving exercises.

CD-ROM contents:

--An extensive selection of complete or partial solutions to book problems that utilize POLYMATH.

--An installable version of the POLYMATH Numerical Computation Package for DOS and Windows on IBM compatible personal computers with complete manual.

--Ten representative book problems and their complete solutions that use Excel, Maple, Mathcad, MATLAB, Mathematica, and POLYMATH. Documentation includes extensive writeups and the files necessary to solve these problems with each of these software packages as prepared by professionals familiar with each software package.
