Discovering Modern C++, 2nd Ed (Addison-Wesley)
Monday, 16 May 2022

Updated for C++17 and C++ 20, this book teaches C++ using realistic examples. Drawing on experience teaching C++ to physicists, mathematicians, engineers, and students, Peter Gottschling guides readers to sophisticated approaches based on advanced features.


The book is a second edition of a title included in our Top Choice C++ Books. It covers increasingly powerful features, from lambdas to expression and variadic templates. Gottschling also shows how to apply C++'s libraries: both the Standard Template Library (STL) and scientific libraries for arithmetic, linear algebra, differential equations, and graphs.
