Overview

Numerical methods are a mainstay of researchers and professionals across the many mathematics, scientific, and engineering disciplines. The importance of these methods combined with the power and availability of today's computers virtually demand that students in these fields be well versed not only in the numerical techniques, but also in the use of a modern computational software package.

Updated to reflect the latest version of MATLAB, the second edition of An Introduction to Numerical Methods continues to fulfill both these needs. It introduces the theory and applications of the most commonly used techniques for solving numerical problems on a computer. It covers a wide range of useful algorithms, each presented with full details so that readers can visualize and interpret each step.

Highlights of the second edition:

  • A new chapter on numerical optimization
  • New sections on finite elements
  • More exercises and applied problems in each chapter
  • MATLAB incorporated as an integral part of the text

    Emphasis on understanding how the methods work, a simple, direct style, and thorough coverage make this book an outstanding initiation that allows students to see almost immediate results. It will boost their confidence in their ability to master the subject and give them valuable experience in the use of MATLAB.
