Numerical Analysis – Burden & Faires – 7th Edition


The new Seventh Edition of Burden and Faires’ well-respected Numerical Analysis provides a foundation in modern numerical- techniques. Explaining how; why; and when the techniques can be expected to work; the Seventh Edition places an even greater emphasis on building readers’ intuition to help them understand why the techniques presented work in general; and why; in some situations; they fail.

Applied problems from diverse areas; such as and ; computer; and biological sciences; are provided so readers can understand how numerical are used in real-life situations. The Seventh Edition has been updated and now addresses the evolving use of ; incorporating it whenever appropriate.
