First Steps in Numerical Analysis by R. J. Hosking, J. C. Turner, S. Joe, D. C. Joyce

This book provides an excellent introduction to the elementary concepts and methods of numerical analysis for students meeting the subject for the first time. The established style of the original is retained with the subject matter being organized into fundamental topics and presented as a series of 'steps.' At the end of each step, checkpoints are included to allow the reader to gauge their understanding of the concepts introduced. In addition, pseudocode is included to allow students to develop computer programs using standard numerical algorithms.
The revisions reflect the huge advances that have occurred in inexpensive computational aids in recent years. New material has been included on systems of linear equations, curve fitting and differential equations. There are additional exercises, and the total number of steps has increased to 35. The result is an invaluable introduction to the basic ideas and methods underlying numerical analysis for all those new to the subject, whether they study at school, college or university.
