Chapter 8

Introduction to Numerical Recipes

This chapter introduces the general ideas of the Numerical Recipes library and, with a very quick example, shows how to retrieve the recipes and demonstration programs and how to compile and run the demonstration program. Specific uses of the recipes for solving ordinary differential equations, evaluating integrals, and finding roots are illustrated in later chapters. This chapter, therefore, is quite short.
