Programming In C++ For Engineering And Science

The Modern Electronic Computer Is One Of The Most Important Products Of The Twentieth Century. It Is An Essential Tool In Many Areas, Including Business, Industry, Government, Science, And Education; Indeed, It Has Touched Nearly Every Aspect Of Our Lives. The Impact Of The Twentieth-Century Information Revolution Brought About By The Development Of High-Speed Computing Systems Has Been Nearly As Widespread As The Impact Of The Nineteenthcentury Industrial Revolution. In This Chapter We Begin With Some Background By Describing Computing Systems, Their Main Components, And How Information Is Stored In Them. Early Computers Were Very Difficult To Program. In Fact, Programming Some Of The Earliest Computers Consisted Of Designing And Building Circuits To Carry Out The Computations Required To Solve Each New Problem. Later, Computer Instructions Could Be Coded In A Language That The Machine Could Understand. But These Codes Were Very Cryptic, And Programming Was Therefore Very Tedious And Error Prone. Computers Would Not Have Gained Widespread Use If It Had Not Been For The Development Of High-Level Programming Languages That Made It Possible To Enter Instructions Using An English-Like Syntax. Fortran, C, C++, Java, And Python Are Some Of The Languages That Are Used Extensively In Engineering And Scientific Applications. This Text Will Focus On C++ But Will Also Describe Some Properties Of Its Parent Language, C, Noting Features That These Two Languages Have In Common, As Well As Their Differences.
