Textbooks on a topic such as C programming are evolutionary, not revolutionary. In contrast, Harry Cheng's entry is an innovative textbook and programming environment that defines a new interactive paradigm for learning and using C and C++ that's particularly well suited for scientists and engineers. And in Multiphysics Modeling Using COMSOL, author Roger W. Pryor has identified and filled the missing link in the existing literature on finite element modeling (FEM) using COMSOL Multiphysics. This hands-on introduction lets scientists and engineers quickly start building and solving models of different physical device structures to see how they behave on a computer before attempting to build physical prototypes.
