About this title


The new Seventh Edition of Burden and Faires' well-respected Numerical Analysis provides a foundation in modern numerical-approximation 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 engineering and physical, computer, and biological sciences, are provided so readers can understand how numerical methods are used in real-life situations. The Seventh Edition has been updated and now addresses the evolving use of technology, incorporating it whenever appropriate.

About the Author:

J. Douglas Faires, late of Youngstown State University, pursued mathematical interests in analysis, numerical analysis, mathematics history, and problem solving. Dr. Faires won numerous awards, including the Outstanding College-University Teacher of Mathematics by the Ohio Section of MAA and five Distinguished Faculty awards from Youngstown State University, which also awarded him an Honorary Doctor of Science award in 2006.

Richard L. Burden is Emeritus Professor of Mathematics at Youngstown State University. His master's degree in mathematics and doctoral degree in mathematics, with a specialization in numerical analysis, were both awarded by Case Western Reserve University. He also earned a masters degree in computer science from the University of Pittsburgh. His mathematical interests include numerical analysis, numerical linear algebra, and mathematical statistics. Dr. Burden has been named a distinguished professor for teaching and service three times at Youngstown State University. He was also named a distinguished chair as the chair of the Department of Mathematical and Computer Sciences. He wrote the Actuarial Examinations in Numerical Analysis from 1990 until 1999.
