This book fills a gap in scientists' computer training by providing the basics needed to use today's computers and software. It describes available equipment and what to expect by way of performance; discusses handling and storage of scientific data and the display of results; gives practical advice on the writing of programs; examines problems of approximate calculation; and makes recommendations about the selection and care of hardware. It is a timely, essential volume for scientists working with computers in experiments and research.But they should give you a feel for how portable devices behave, and for how many spare batteries you should carry. ... are often copied from written labels, and much time and effort can be saved if the equipment can read the labels directly.
