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.· Taylor Polynomials · Error and Computer Arithmetic · Rootfinding · Interpolation and Approximation · Numerical Integration and Differentiation · Solution of Systems of Linear Equations · Numerical Linear Algebra: Advanced Topics · Ordinary Differential Equations · Finite Difference Method for PDEs

This book provides a thorough and careful introduction to the theory and practice of scientific computing at an elementary, yet rigorous, level, from theory via examples and algorithms to computer programs. The original FORTRAN programs have been rewritten in MATLAB and now appear in a new appendix and online, offering a modernized version of this classic reference for basic numerical algorithms.

A concise introduction to numerical analysis for students in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering. In addition to coverage of all standard topics, it explores approximation methods, construction of algorithms, iteration methods, error analysis, stability, asymptotic error formulas, and the effects of machine arithmetic. Computer programming applications are given in Fortran 77. Features numerous problems and exercises at the end of each section.

This updated introduction to modern numerical analysis is a complete revision of a classic text originally written in Fortran but now featuring the programming language C++. It focuses on a relatively small number of basic concepts and techniques. Many exercises appear throughout the text, most with solutions. An extensive tutorial explains how to solve problems with C++.

Dieses Numerik-Lehrbuch entwickelte sich seit der 1. Auflage zum Standardwerk. In zahlreichen Lehrveranstaltungen wird es als Begleittext verwendet. Der Erfolg dieses Lehrbuchs ist begründet. Es präsentiert, streng analytisch, grundlegende Prinzipien der Numerischen Mathematik, verknüpft diese aber zugleich mit der praktischen Anwendung, indem es fundamentale algorithmische Werkzeuge bereitstellt und diskutiert. Neue Methodologien und daraus resultierende numerische Verfahren der vergangenen Jahre sind in die 10. Neuauflage integriert: aktualisierte Grundlagen, neue algorithmische Techniken, die kritische Beurteilung existenter Methoden.

Numerical Methods provides a clear and concise exploration of standard numerical analysis topics, as well as nontraditional ones, including mathematical modeling, Monte Carlo methods, Markov chains, and fractals. Filled with appealing examples that will motivate students, the textbook considers modern application areas, such as information retrieval and animation, and classical topics from physics and engineering. Exercises use MATLAB and promote understanding of computational results. The book gives instructors the flexibility to emphasize different aspects--design, analysis, or computer implementation--of numerical algorithms, depending on the background and interests of students. Designed for upper-division undergraduates in mathematics or computer science classes, the textbook assumes that students have prior knowledge of linear algebra and calculus, although these topics are reviewed in the text. Short discussions of the history of numerical methods are interspersed throughout the chapters. The book also includes polynomial interpolation at Chebyshev points, use of the MATLAB package Chebfun, and a section on the fast Fourier transform. Supplementary materials are available online.

Concise, rigorous introduction to modern numerical analysis, especially error-analysis aspects of problems and algorithms discussed. The book focuses on a small number of basic concepts and techniques, emphasizing why each works. Exercises and answers.

This book presents the central ideas of modern numerical analysis in a vivid and straightforward fashion with a minimum of fuss and formality. Stewart designed this volume while teaching an upper-division course in introductory numerical analysis. To clarify what he was teaching, he wrote down each lecture immediately after it was given. The result reflects the wit, insight, and verbal craftmanship which are hallmarks of the author. Simple examples are used to introduce each topic, then the author quickly moves on to the discussion of important methods and techniques. With its rich mixture of graphs and code segments, the book provides insights and advice that help the reader avoid the many pitfalls in numerical computation that can easily trap an unwary beginner. Written by a leading expert in numerical analysis, this book is certain to be the one you need to guide you through your favorite textbook.
