518 Numerical analysis

Many books have chapters on numerical analysis related to the main theme of the book. If, for example, a book is mainly about differential equations, with perhaps a chapter about numerical solutions, it will be found under differential equations (515.35) - if it's primarily about numerical solution of differential equations it will be found under  518.63 (ODEs) or 518.64 (PDEs).

  • 518.0285 Programs for numerical analysis (Matlab, Octave, etc) and programming (Numerical Recipes, GSL).
  • 518.2 Specific methods, e.g. 518.25 finite elements, 518.282 Monte Carlo.
  • 518.43 Numerical linear algebra
  • 518.6 Numerical methods in analysis

519 Probabilities and applied mathematics

  • 519.2 Probabilitis
  • 519.3 Game theory
  • 519.5 Statistical matematics
    • 519.52 Theory of sampling
    • 519.53 Descriptive statistics, multivariate analysis, analysis of variance and covariance
  • 519.6 Matematical optimization
  • 519.7 Programing (in the sense of optimization
