Designed for an undergraduate course in numerical analysis and requiring only calculus and some basic programming concepts as background, this book introduces readers to the theory and applications of the most commonly used techniques for solving numerical problems on a personal computer. With emphasis on how each method works, it covers a wide range of useful algorithms, each presented with full details so that readers can visualize and interpret each step. The enclosed CD-ROM contains simple MATLAB functions that provide step-by-step explanations of the mechanisms behind the algorithm for each technique and guides readers through the necessary calculations.
