Introduction To Numerical Analysis 2ND Editionby F B Hildebrand
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:The ultimate aim of the field of numerical analysis is to provide convenient methods for obtaining useful solutions to mathematical problems and for extracting useful information from available solutions which are not expressed in tractable forms. This wellknown, highly respected volume provides an introduction to the fundamental processes of numerical analysis, including substantial grounding in the basic operations of computation, approximation, interpolation, numerical differentiation and integration, and the numerical solution of equations, as well as in applications to such processes as the smoothing of data, the numerical summation of series, and the numerical solution of ordinary differential equations. Chapter headings include: l. Introduction 2. Interpolation with Divided Differences 3. Lagrangian Methods 4. FiniteDifference Interpolation 5. Operations with Finite Differences 6. Numerical Solution of Differential Equations 7. LeastSquares Polynomial Approximation In this revised and updated second edition, Professor Hildebrand (Emeritus, Mathematics, MIT) made a special effort to include more recent significant developments in the field, increasing the focus on concepts and procedures associated with computers. This new material includes discussions of machine errors and recursive calculation, increased emphasis on the midpoint rule and the consideration of Romberg integration and the classical Filon integration; a modified treatment of predictioncorrection methods and the addition of Hamming's method, and numerous other important topics. In addition, reference lists have been expanded and updated, and more than 150 new problems have been added. Widely considered the classic book in the field, Hildebrand's Introduction to Numerical Analysis is aimed at advanced undergraduate and graduate students, or the general reader in search of a strong, clear introduction to the theory and analysis of numbers. Synopsis:Wellknown, respected introduction, updated to integrate concepts and procedures associated with computers. Computation, approximation, interpolation, numerical differentiation and integration, smoothing of data, more. Includes 150 additional problems in this edition. Table of ContentsPreface
