AB - This is a textbook in numerical analysis and scientific computing intended for students with a year of calculus coursework, and familiarity with matrix algebra and differential equations. Leader prefers not to introduce both mathematical topics and numerical techniques, so all the techniques in this book will be familiar to anyone with the prerequisites listed; for example, Leader chooses not to present the Fourier transform because many students might not be familiar with Fourier analysis. In addition to the usual contents of a textbook like this, there is an emphasis on optimization (displayed by an entire chapter on nonlinear optimization), and optional MATLAB subsections at the end of each subsection.
