9780521805261: Fundamentals of Engineering Numerical Analysis

Engineers need hands-on experience in solving complex engineering problems with computers. This text introduces numerical methods and shows how to develop, analyze, and use them. A thorough and practical book, it is intended for use in a first course in numerical analysis. Along with mastering the fundamentals of numerical methods, students will learn to write their own computer programs using standard numerical methods. They will learn what factors affect accuracy, stability, and convergence, and how to evaluate critically the numerical output from a computer. Special features are the numerous examples and exercises that give students first-hand experience.
