ISBN13: 978-0534389055
ISBN10: 0534389058

Summary: This highly successful and scholarly book introduces students with diverse backgrounds to the various types of mathematical analysis that are commonly needed in scientific computing. The subject of numerical analysis is treated from a mathematical point of view, offering a complete analysis of methods for scientific computing with careful proofs and scientific background. An in-depth treatment of the topics of numerical analysis, a more scholarly approach, and a diff
erent menu of topics sets this book apart from the authors' well-respected and best-selling text: NUMERICAL MATHEMATICS AND COMPUTING, FOURTH EDITION.

Benefits:
  • Problems have been separated into Problems and Computer Problems.
  • This text includes an extensive and updated bibliography of more than 400 items.
  • Algorithms are presented in pseudocode, so that students can immediately write computer programs in standard languages or use interactive mathematical software packages.
  • NEW! The authors have added a chapter on optimization. Subtopics addressed in this new chapter are methods of descent, quadratic fitting algorithms, the Nelder-Meade algorithm, simulated annealing, genetic algorithms, Pareto optimization, and convex programming
  • NEW! Up-to-date information about resources on the Internet has been added.
  • NEW! References to problems and to other parts of the book now include page numbers to help the reader find them easily.
  • NEW! Theorems are displayed with names or titles to help the reader remember them.
  • NEW! Approximately 20% of the problems are new to this edition.
  • NEW! The book has a new design that makes it easier for students to find and review information.
