Authors Ward Cheney and David Kincaid show students of science and engineering the potential computers have for solving numerical problems and give them ample opportunities to hone their skills in programming and problem solving. The text also helps students learn about errors that inevitably accompany scientific computations and arms them with methods for detecting, predicting, and controlling these errors. A more theoretical text with a different menu of topics is the authors' highly regarded NUMERICAL ANALYSIS: MATHEMATICS OF SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING, THIRD EDITION.

**Benefits: **

- NEW! New coverage of eigenvalues and eigenvectors, Newton-Cotes integration rules, Cholesky factorization, power methods, and the finite element method.
- NEW! More examples throughout, many involving the use of Matlab, Maple, or Mathematica. These systems illustrate some of the powerful software tools available for numerical, symbolic, and graphical computations.
- NEW! Additional exercises are included. Many more problems now have answers in the back of the book.
- NEW! Summaries appear at the end of each section.
- NEW! The appendices have been reorganized and new ones added. The appendix on an Overview of Mathematical Software Available on the World Wide Web has been brought up to date. Some material has been moved to the appendices such as programming suggestions and additional details on the IEEE floating-point standard.
- Numerous examples and problems are solved using either computations by hand, by using a calculator, or utilizing mathematical packages such as Matlab, Maple, and Mathematica.
- Problems are supplied in abundance to enhance the books versatility. They are divided into two categories: PROBLEMS and COMPUTER PROBLEMS. In the first category, more than 800 analysis exercises require pencil, paper, and possibly a calculator. In the second category, approximately 500 problems involve writing a program and testing it on a computer.
- Sample programs and other material supporting the text is available at: www.ma.utexas.edu/CNA/NMC5/
- Throughout the book, computer problems designated as STUDENT RESEARCH PROJECTS suggest opportunities for students to explore topics beyond the scope of the book.
