Summary
"This textbook is a concise introduction to the fundamental concepts and methods of numerical mathematics. The author manages to cover the many important topics while avoiding redundancies and using well-chosen examples and exercises. The exposition is supplemented by numerous figures. Work estimates and pseudo codes are provided for many algorithms, which can be easily converted to computer programs. Topics covered include interpolation, the fast Fourier transform, iterative methods for solving systems of linear and nonlinear equations, numerical methods for solving ODEs, numerical methods for matrix eigenvalue problems, approximation theory, and computer arithmetic." "The book is suitable as a text for a first course in numerical methods for mathematics students or students in neighboring fields, such as engineering, physics, and computer science. In general, the author assumes only a knowledge of calculus and linear algebra."--BOOK JACKET
