Authors Cheney and Kincaid show students of science and engineering the modern computer's potential for solving numerical problems and gives them ample opportunity to hone their skills in programming and problem solving. The text helps students learn about errors that inevitably accompany scientific computing and arms them with methods for detecting, predicting, and controlling these errors. In this edition a discussion of how to locate codes for numerical algorithms on the World Wide Web has been added. A new section on iterative methods for solving large systems of linear equations has also been added. A less scholarly approach and a different menu of topics sets this book apart from the authors' highly regarded NUMERICAL ANALYSIS: MATHEMATICS OF SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING, SECOND EDITION.

Ward Cheney is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Texas at Austin. His research interests include approximation theory, numerical analysis, and extremum problems.Review:
"I have to say that I have looked at a dozen or so books and [this] seems to be the best. Some of the best features: good choice of subjects, well written, virtually no misprints, easy to understand, many good examples . . . extensive and good choices of exercises and good answer book. [It] makes a good reference."
"My overall impression is that [the text] presents the material more clearly, usually without unnecessary generality and without burying the ideas in too much notation. Students at this level can be 'blown away' just by notational matters. This book avoids this most of the time, especially when presenting the basic mathematical discussions of the numerical methods considered. I have also found the material devoted to the derivations of the methods very well written."
