Om boka

Master the C code appropriate for numerical methods and computational modeling, including syntax, loops, subroutines, and files. Then, this hands-on book dives into financial applications using regression models, product moment correlation coefficients, and asset pricing.



Next, Practical Numerical C Programming covers applications for engineering/business such as supermarket stock reordering simulation as well as flight information boards at airports and controlling a power plant. Finally, the book concludes with some physics including building simulation models for energy and pendulum motion. Along the way, you'll learn center-of-mass calculations, Brownian motion, and more.



After reading and using this book, you'll come away with pragmatic case studies of actual applications using C code at work. Source code is freely available and includes the latest C20 standard release.



What You Will Learn





Apply regression techniques to find the pattern for depreciation of the value of cars over a period of years
Work with the product moment correlation coefficient technique to illustrate the accuracy (or otherwise) of regression techniques
Use the past stock values of an asset to predict what its future values may be using Monte Carlo methods
Simulate the buying of supermarket stock by shoppers and check the remaining stock: if it is too low print a message to reorder the stock
Create a file of arrivals for an airport and send data to the airport's display boards to show the current situation for the incoming flights
Simulate the patterns of particles moving in gases or solids

Who This Book Is For



Programmers and computational modelers with at least some prior experience with programming in C as well as programming in general.

PART 2 - ENGINEERING/INDUSTRIAL/COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS
Chapter 5: Supermarket Stock Reordering Simulation Create a file of stock for a supermarket. Simulate the buying of stock by shoppers. Check the remaining stock. If it is too low print a message to reorder the stock. Exercises
Chapter 6: Flight Information Boards at Airports Create a file of arrivals for an airport. Send data to the airport's display boards to show the current situation for the incoming flights. Update a flight and refresh the information to the display boards. ExercisesChapter 6 : Power Plant Control Program receives messages about pressures, temperatures, flow rates etc for a power plant. The program checks for values outside safety ranges and acts upon any problem values by sending messages to both the gauges and the managers responsible for them. Exercises
