Applied Numerical Analysis (7th Edition)

The seventh edition of this classic text has retained the features that make it popular, while updating its treatment and inclusion of Computer Algebra Systems and Programming Languages. Interesting and timely applications motivate and enhance readers' understanding of methods and analysis of results. This text incorporates a balance of theory with techniques and applications, including optional theory-based sections in each chapter. The exercise sets include additional challenging problems and projects which show practical applications of the material. Also, sections which discuss the use of computer algebra systems such as Maple®, Mathematica®, and MATLAB®, facilitate the integration of technology in the course. Furthermore, the text incorporates programming material in both FORTRAN and C. The breadth of topics, such as partial differential equations, systems of nonlinear equations, and matrix algebra, provide comprehensive and flexible coverage of all aspects of numerical analysis.


Preliminaries; Solving Nonlinear Equations; Solving Sets of Equations; Interpolation and Curve Fitting; Approximation of Functions; Numerical Differentiation and Integration; Numerical Solution of Ordinary Differential Equations; Optimization; Partial Differential Equations; Finite Element Analysis
