Reviews

From the reviews:"This book is intended for experts - mathematicians or other scientists who are familiar with the concept of programming in a high-level language and experienced in programming in languages like Fortran or MathLab. The book contains an almost full description of C++ capabilities listing the basic distinctive features of programming in it. It can serve as a fine manual for quick introduction to the subtleties of C++. ... Finally a plenty of useful examples and exercises with solutions is presented."
