Book DetailsPure and Applied Undergraduate TextsVolume: 2; 2002; 788 ppMSC: Primary 65
This book introduces students with diverse backgrounds to 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 appropriate motivations and careful proofs.
In an engaging and informal style, the authors demonstrate that many computational procedures and intriguing questions of computer science arise from theorems and proofs. Algorithms are presented in pseudocode, so that students can immediately write computer programs in standard languages or use interactive mathematical software packages.
This book occasionally touches upon more advanced topics that are not usually contained in standard textbooks at this level.
Ancillaries:
ReadershipUndergraduate and graduate students interested in applied mathematics and scientific computing.
