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.

1. INTRODUCTION. 1.1 Preliminary Remarks. 1.2 Review of Taylor Series.

2. FLOATING-POINT REPRESENTATION AND ERRORS. 2.1 Floating-Point Representation. 2.2 Loss of Significance.

3. LOCATING ROOTS OF EQUATIONS. 3.1 Bisection Method. 3.2 Newtonï¿½s Method. 3.3 Secant Method.

4. INTERPOLATION AND NUMERICAL DIFFERENTIATION. 4.1 Polynomial Interpolation. 4.2 Errors in Polynomial Interpolation. 4.3 Estimating Derivatives and Richardson Extrapolation.

5. NUMERICAL INTEGRATION. 5.1 Lower and Upper Sums. 5.2 Trapezoid Rule. 5.3 Romberg Algorithm.

6. ADDITIONAL TOPICS ON NUMERICAL INTEGRATION. 6.1 Simpsonï¿½s Rule and Adaptive Simpsonï¿½s Rule. 6.2 Gaussian Quadrature Formulas.
