The Handbook of Software for Engineers and Scientists is a single-volume, ready reference for the practicing engineer and scientist in industry, government, and academia as well as the novice computer user. It provides the most up-to-date information in a variety of areas such as common platforms and operating systems, applications programs, networking, and many other problem-solving tools necessary to effectively use computers on a daily basis. Specific platforms and environments thoroughly discussed include MS-DOSAr, MicrosoftAr WindowsTM, the MacintoshAr and its various systems, UNIXTM, DEC VAXTM, IBMAr mainframes, OS/2Ar, WindowsTM NT, and NeXTSTEPTM. Word processing, desktop publishing, spreadsheets, databases, integrated packages, computer presentation systems, groupware, and a number of useful utilities are also covered. Several extensive sections in the book are devoted to mathematical and statistical software. Information is provided on circuits and control simulation programs, finite element tools, and solid modeling tools. Additional coverage is included on data communications and networking. Many appendices at the end of the book provide useful supplemental information, such as ASCII codes, RS-232 parallel port and pinout information, and ANSI escape sequences. This valuable resource handbook brings together a wide variety of topics and offers a wealth of information at the reader's fingertips.The mathematical software includes AXIOM, DERIVE, Macsyma, Maple, MathCad, Mathematica, and MATLAB. ... with tools such as SPICE for electrical simulations for the electrical engineer, and finite element systems such as ALGOR and ANSYS for the civil and mechanical engineer. ... Much of the material in this section is given in tutorial form, allowing the newcomer to the field to master quickly theanbsp;...
