Summary The text emphasizes the importance of good structure in the presentation of the computational algorithms. The chapters and sections have been divided in a manner which represents not only a chronological development of the knowledge base but also the algorithmic flow, from coarse to a more refined basis of calculation. This book is of value because an expert in the subject has made a personal selection of applicable formulae, and presented them in a comprehensive and consistent format, both on paper and in the form of computer programs. Books such as this are indispensable references for the research worker and for the practising engineer
