Summary: There are many textbooks to choose from when teaching an introductory numerical analysis course, but there is only one Afternotes on Numerical Analysis. 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 im
mediately 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.
