Editorial Review Product Description This textbook prepares graduate students for research in numerical analysis/computational mathematics by giving to them a mathematical framework embedded in functional analysis and focused on numerical analysis. This helps the student to move rapidly into a research program. The text covers basic results of functional analysis, approximation theory, Fourier analysis and wavelets, iteration methods for nonlinear equations, finite difference methods, Sobolev spaces and weak formulations of boundary value problems, finite element methods, elliptic variational inequalities and their numerical solution, numerical methods for solving integral equations of the second kind, and boundary integral equations for planar regions. The presentation of each topic is meant to be an introduction with certain degree of depth. Comprehensive references on a particular topic are listed at the end of each chapter for further reading and study. Because of the relevance in solving real world problems, multivariable polynomials are playing an ever more important role in research and applications. In this third editon, a new chapter on this topic has been included and some major changes are made on two chapters from the previous edition. In addition, there are numerous minor changes throughout the entire text and new exercises are added. Review of earlier edition: "...the book is clearly written, quite pleasant to read, and contains a lot of important material; and the authors have done an excellent job at balancing theoretical developments, interesting examples and exercises, numerical experiments, and bibliographical references." R. Glowinski, SIAM Review, 2003 Customer Reviews (1)

Editorial Review Product Description ". . . outstandingly appealing with regard to its style, contents, considerations of requirements of practice, choice of examples, and exercises." ". . . carefully structured with many detailed worked examples . . ." ". . . an up-to-date and user-friendly account . . ." An Introduction to Numerical Methods and Analysis addresses the mathematics underlying approximation and scientific computing and successfully explains where approximation methods come from, why they sometimes work (or don't work), and when to use one of the many techniques that are available. Written in a style that emphasizes readability and usefulness for the numerical methods novice, the book begins with basic, elementary material and gradually builds up to more advanced topics. A selection of concepts required for the study of computational mathematics is introduced, and simple approximations using Taylor's Theorem are also treated in some depth. The text includes exercises that run the gamut from simple hand computations, to challenging derivations and minor proofs, to programming exercises. A greater emphasis on applied exercises as well as the cause and effect associated with numerical mathematics is featured throughout the book. An Introduction to Numerical Methods and Analysis is the ideal text for students in advanced undergraduate mathematics and engineering courses who are interested in gaining an understanding of numerical methods and numerical analysis. |

poor choice of font; obsolete software references
Atkinson writes the best numerical analysis textbooks
Knowledge that more people need
Excellent Book - not for everyone.
thorough, but thoroughly unreadable The typesetting could have been a bit better. I wish the proofs had been set off from the examples and the text a little more. There is also too much referencing to earlier equations. Rather than referring me over and over to equatin (6.2.1), just re-write the equation. Also, this book is starting to show its age. It is now 11 years old, so its bibliography is a bit outdated, as are references to computer programs. My most severe criticism of this book is that it is sorely lacking in explanations. There is little intuition provided here. Definately not an undergrad book. A much better text to learn from--but not as useful as a reference as this book is--is Burden and Faires. B&F make lots of use of pseudo-code and I applaud them for it. It helps detangle some of the math. ... Read more |

Editorial Review Product Description The seventh edition of this classic text has retained the features that make it popular, while updating its treatment and inclusion of Computer Algebra Systems and Programming Languages. Interesting and timely applications motivate and enhance readers' understanding of methods and analysis of results. This text incorporates a balance of theory with techniques and applications, including optional theory-based sections in each chapter. The exercise sets include additional challenging problems and projects which show practical applications of the material. Also, sections which discuss the use of computer algebra systems such as Maple®, Mathematica®, and MATLAB®, facilitate the integration of technology in the course. Furthermore, the text incorporates programming material in both FORTRAN and C. The breadth of topics, such as partial differential equations, systems of nonlinear equations, and matrix algebra, provide comprehensive and flexible coverage of all aspects of numerical analysis.
Preliminaries; Solving Nonlinear Equations; Solving Sets of Equations; Interpolation and Curve Fitting; Approximation of Functions; Numerical Differentiation and Integration; Numerical Solution of Ordinary Differential Equations; Optimization; Partial Differential Equations; Finite Element Analysis

Don't expect to learn from this
Good for reference, but don't expect to learn from this book
Good Reference Book
Fantastic!Stupendous! I'm writing my own book on numerical algorithms for embeddedsystems, so I know whereof I speak._GOOD_ books that are both readable byordinary mortals, and usable for serious computing, can be counted on thefingers of one hand. Most are either too pedantic and obtuse, or too simpleand shallow, or directed at a small subtopic of the larger area ofnumerical methods.Somehow, through a combination of simple, no-snowexamples, lots of exercises, and Matlab programs, author Faucett manages toinclude virtually every aspect of numerical methods.Not only that, butshe includes them in depth, in a way that's easy to follow and exercisesthat drive every point home.In my travels, I've seen a lot of referencesto such things as Runge-Kutta and Adams-Moulton methods, solving stiffODE's, solving for eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and Householderand QRtransformations, to name a few.It's rare to find easily intelligibleexplanations, with derivations, for any _ONE_ of them.To find them all inone book is astonishing. Clearly, by the title, you get the impressionthat having Matlab will make this book more valuable to you, and it will. However, don't get the idea that the book is only for users of Matlab. Whether you have it or not, you will not find another book so loaded withgems of knowledge about numerical methods.

Best numerical analysis textbook
NOT Recommended
Numerical Mathematics and Computing
Incomplete explanations, lack of examples....
From a student's view......Garbage The book is not totally at fault in my case.I also have a horrible instructor and have to rely soley on this book to learn the material.This book just makes it very, very hard to teach myself.My only praise of the book is it's pseudocode for implementing the methods explained.They can easily be used to program them in C++ or other languages. Overall the book is very confusing but it is still far better than my instructor who doesn't explain anything or answer questions. ... Read more |

Editorial Review Product Description Covering a wide range of techniques, this book describes methods for the solution of partial differential equations which govern wave propagation and are used in modeling atmospheric and oceanic flows. The presentation establishes a concrete link between theory and practice. Customer Reviews (1)
A great textbook! I used the book toteach a graduate course on numerical methods at the University of Chicago. I could not cover the entire book in a 10-week quarter, but was able tocover chapters 2,3,4 and 5.The clearly written text was very helpful inorganizing the class material. The problems sets at the end of eachchapter are also well designed, albeit mostly theoretical.It would behelpful to have separate programming assignments based on these problems,so students can learn how to apply principles into practice. ...
