Description

For undergraduate Introduction to Numerical Analysis courses in mathematics, science, and engineering departments.

This book provides a fundamental introduction to numerical analysis for undergraduate students in the areas of mathematics, computer science, physical sciences, and engineering. Knowledge of calculus is assumed.

Features

  • NEW - Expanded emphasis on analysis of competing methods and issues of error.
    • Helps students understand that one can't rely blindly on a given numerical package.

  • NEW - Rewritten chapter on numerical optimization.
    • Provides a presentation that flows more smoothly.

  • NEW - New topics for minimization of z = f(x,y) are included.
    • Gives students a more thorough treatment that is useful here.

  • NEW - Projects for undergraduate library research experience have been added.
    • Provides students with opportunities for further study.

  • Explicit use of the software MATLAB is offered.
    • Builds on students' knowledge of structured programming and provides the opportunity to practice scientific programming.

  • Each numerical method is presented in a self-contained format.
    • Clearly explains numerical methods to students.

  • Balance of theory and application.
    • Builds on students' knowledge of calculus and basic linear algebra in a clear and readable presentation.

  • A variety of problems.
    • Sharpens students skills with extensive problem sets with a wide variety of activities.

  • A wealth of tables and graphs.
    • Illustrates computer calculations in examples making the resulting numerical approximations easier to interpret.
