Numerical Analysis - Fourth Edition Author:Richard L. Burden, J. Douglas Faires Richard Burden and J. Douglas Faires introduce readers to numerical analysis by showing how, why, and when numerical methods can be expected to work. Difficult concepts are explained clearly through the use of examples and exercises ranging from elementary applications of algorithms to generalizations and extensions of theory. The authors also p... more »resent numerous applied problems from diverse areas of engineering and the physical, biological, and social sciences. NUMERICAL ANALYSIS gives readers a firm base of knowledge for future study.
