## Description

This highly respected text provides an introduction to the theory and application of modern numerical approximation techniques for students taking a one or two semester course in numerical analysis. With an accessible treatment that only requires a computational requirement, Burden’s Numerical Analysis and Faires explains how, why, and when approximation techniques can be expected to work and why, in some situations, they fail.

A wealth of examples and exercises develop student intuition and demonstrate practical applications of the subject to important everyday problems in mathematics, computer science, engineering, and physical science disciplines.

The first book of its kind built from the bottom up to serve a diverse audience of students, three decades later Numerical Analysis of Burden and Faires remains the definitive introduction to a vital and practical subject.
