Offering a clear, precise, and accessible presentation, complete with MATLAB programs, this new Third Edition of Elementary Numerical Analysis gives students the support they need to master basic numerical analysis and scientific computing. Now updated and revised, this significant revision features reorganized and rewritten content, as well as some new additional examples and problems.

The text introduces core areas of numerical analysis and scientific computing along with basic themes of numerical analysis such as the approximation of problems by simpler methods, the construction of algorithms, iteration methods, error analysis, stability, asymptotic error formulas, and the effects of machine arithmetic.


An introduction to numerical analysis for undergraduates in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering. The main prerequisite is a one-year course in the calculus of functions of one variable, but some knowledge of computer programming is also needed. This revised edition (first was 1985) adds examples and new problems, as well as new sections on the general theory of fixed point methods for rootfinding problems and on iteration methods for solving systems of nonlinear equations.
