Numerical Methods – Burden & Faires – 3rd Edition


This well-respected text gives an introduction to the modern approximation techniques and explains how; why; and when the techniques can be expected to work. The authors focus on building students’ intuition to help them understand why the techniques presented work in general; and why; in some situations; they fail.

With a wealth of examples and exercises; the text demonstrates the relevance of numerical analysis to a variety of disciplines and provides ample practice for students. The applications chosen demonstrate concisely how numerical methods can be; and often must be; applied in real-life situations. In this edition; the presentation has been fine-tuned to make the book even more useful to the instructor and more interesting to the reader.

Overall; students gain a theoretical understanding of; and a firm basis for future study of; numerical analysis and scientific computing. A more applied text with a different menu of topics is the authors’ highly regarded NUMERICAL METHODS; Third Edition.
