Overview

This textbook is written primarily for undergraduate mathematicians and also appeals to students working at an advanced level in other disciplines. The text begins with a clear motivation for the study of numerical analysis based on real-world problems. The authors then develop the necessary machinery including iteration, interpolation, boundary-value problems and finite elements. Throughout, the authors keep an eye on the analytical basis for the work and add historical notes on the development of the subject. There are numerous exercises for students.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is a solid text in the basics of numerical mathematics, using more of a theoretical background than most. If you are looking for a book to use in a course in numerical analysis where there is an emphasis on the theoretical background, then this one will serve your needs." Journal of Recreational Mathematics

"carefully written with a good level of rigor" SIAM Review
