## Introduction to numerical analysisAuthor Alastair Wood provides a clear and concise book for novice numerical analysts. Computer based experiments allow readers to learn by doing. Methods are developed with sufficient background, allowing readers to see why a method works and when a method does not work. Wood offers an introduction to the more basic theoretical elements, as well as generating practical skills. Computer skills and real applications are stressed as Wood explores such topics as the Taylor Series, Maclaurin Series, Jacobi Iteration and Gauss-Seidel iteration. For novice Numerical Analysts. |
