This book provides a fundamental introduction to numerical analysis.
This book covers numerous topics including Interpolation and Polynomial Approximation, Curve Fitting, Numerical Differentiation, Numerical Integration, and Numerical Optimization.
For engineering and computer science fields.
Provides an introduction to numerical analysis for undergraduates in mathematics, computer science, physical sciences, and engineering. Emphasis is on why numerical methods work and their limitations, with material balanced between theory, error analysis, and readability. MATLAB programs are the vehicle for presenting underlying numerical algorithms. Includes exercises and computer assignments, with extensive use of MATLAB, new to this third edition. Assumes previous courses in calculus and structured programming. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
