Applied Numerical Analysis – Curtis F. Gerald – 7th Edition


The seventh edition of this classic text has retained the features that make it popular, while updating its treatment and inclusion of Computer Algebra and Programming . Interesting and timely motivate and enhance readers’ understanding of methods and analysis of results.

This text incorporates a balance of theory with techniques and applications, including optional theory-based sections in each chapter. The exercise sets include additional challenging problems and projects which show practical applications of the material.

Also, sections which discuss the use of computer algebra systems such as Maple®, Mathematica®, and ®, facilitate the of in the course. Furthermore, the text incorporates programming material in both FORTRAN and C. The breadth of topics, such as partial , systems of nonlinear equations, and , provide comprehensive and flexible coverage of all aspects of numerical analysis.
