Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides professionals and students with a thorough understanding of the interface between mathematics and scientific computation. Ranging from classical questions to modern techniques, it explains why numerical computations succeed or fail. The book is divided into four sections, with an emphasis on the use of mathematics as a tool in determining the success rate of numerical methods. The text requires only a modest level of mathematical training, and is ideally suited for scientists and students in mathematics, physics and engineering.
