Abstract:

This book offers the following: Quick indtroduction to numerical methods, with roundoff error and computer arithmetic deferred until students ahve gained some experience with real algorithms; mofern approach to numerical linear algebra; explanations to the numerical techniques used by the major computational programs students are likely to use in practice(especally MATLAB, but also Maple and the Netlib library); Appropriate mix of numerical analysis theory and practical sciencfic computation principles; greater than usual emphasis on optimization; numerical experiments so students can gain experience; and efficient and unobtrusice introduction to MATLAB.
