  • A basic, concise introduction to C++ programming for everyone from students to scientists and engineers seeking a quick grasp of key topics
  • Provides a comparative analysis and discussion of C++ in relation to other programming languages such as C, Fortran, and Matlab®
  • Graphics chapters allow the reader to apply what is taught in the beginning chapters
  • Contains a tutorial on the usage of Matlab® functions in C++ code

C++ has grown rapidly in response to the practical need for a programming language that is able to efficiently handle composite and diverse data types. Today, C++ dominates the commercial market and is favored among application developers.

Introduction to C++ Programming and Graphics offers a venue for rapidly learning the language by concisely revealing its grammar, syntax and main features, and by explaining the key ideas behind object oriented programming (OOP), with emphasis on scientific computing.

The book reviews elemental concepts of computers and computing, describes the primary features of C++, illustrates the use of pointers and user-defined functions, and analyzes the construction of classes. Distinctive features include:

  • An effective selection and presentation of topics and supporting examples

  • A tutorial on the usage of MATLAB® functions in C++ code

  • Tables for translating MATLAB® and Fortran 77 into C++ code, illustrating syntactic differences between these languages

  • Chapters on graphics and GUI programming based on the VOGLE library and the GLUT, GLUI and GTK+ utility toolboxes

This invaluable resource provides a basic, concise introduction to C++ for the novice, allowing the reader to easily grasp the necessary concepts, rather than trying to absorb an extensive reference book. Scientists, engineers, professionals and students familiar with the general principles of computer programming and proficient in an easy programming language will find this volume an ideal entry point into C++.
