While teaching the Numerical Methods for Engineers course over the last 15 years, the author found a need for a new textbook, one that was less elementary, provided applications and problems better suited for chemical engineers, and contained instruction in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). This led to six years of developing teaching notes that

Ordinary Differential Equations (Initial Value Problems). Ordinary Differential Equations (Boundary Value Problems). Regression Analysis and Parameter Estimation. Partial Differential Equations. Linear Programming, Nonlinear Programming, Nonlinear Equations, and Nonlinear Regression Using Solver. Introduction to MATLAB. Appendix A: Additional Features of VBA. Index.
