Beschreibung

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.

Inhaltsverzeichnis:
Chapter 1 Review of C               Review of C and SDK with reference to the topics in this book.               Reminds the reader of C syntax.                Use loops, subroutines, file access.               Create typical programs in C using SDK               Exercises
PART 1 – FINANCIAL APPLICATIONS
Chapter 2 Regression:                Use regression techniques to find the pattern for depreciation of the value of cars over a period of years. Program written will create graphical displays to illustrate the topic.                              Exercises
Chapter 3 Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (PMCC):                Use this technique to illustrate the accuracy (or otherwise) of regression techniques. Exercises
Chapter 4 : Asset PricingUse the past stock values of an Asset to predict what its future values may be using Monte Carlo methods.Graphics displays to illustrate the topic.               Exercises


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


PART 3 – PHYSICS APPLICATIONS
Chapter 8 Potential Energy and Kinetic Energy Simulation Use formulas for Potential Energy and Kinetic Energy to show how one falls at the same rate as the other rises.Exercises
Chapter 9 Pendulum Simulation  Use formulas for the motion of a pendulum to create a graph to illustrate the mathematical relationship on a graph . Exercises
Chapter 10: Centre of Mass Calculation               Calculate the centre of mass of unusually-shaped objects.               Exercises
Chapter 11 : Brownian Motion Simulate the patterns of particles moving in gases or solids. Graphical displays to illustrate the topic. Exercises
Chapter 12 Vacancy Model of Atoms Moving in SolidsDemonstrate the Vacancy Model of atoms moving in solids where they can move into empty sites within the solid. Graphical displays will show the movement of the atoms within a 2D site.Exercises


APPENDICES
A.  C Programming Code Guide


B.   Answers to exercisesThese could be contained in an included CD which could also contain some data files the students could use in their examples
