Numerical Analysis – Richard L. Burden, J. Douglas Faires – 9th Edition


This highly respected text provides an introduction to the theory and application of modern numerical approximation techniques for students taking a one or two semester in . With an accessible treatment that only requires a computational requirement, Burden’s Numerical and Faires explains how, why, and when approximation techniques can be expected to work and why, in some situations, they fail.

A wealth of examples and exercises develop intuition and demonstrate practical applications of the subject to important everyday in mathematics, computer science, engineering, and disciplines.

The first book of its kind built from the bottom up to serve a diverse audience of students, three decades later Numerical Analysis of Burden and Faires remains the definitive introduction to a vital and practical subject.
