Offering a clear, precise and accessible presentation, this book gives students the solid support they need to master basic numerical analysis techniques. It is suitable for a course in Numerical Methods for under-graduate students of all branches of engineering, students of Master of Computer Applications (MCA) and Bachelor of Computer Applications (BCA), and students pursuing diploma courses in engineering disciplines. The book can also serve as a useful reference for students of mathe-matics and statistics.
The book focuses on core areas of numerical analysis such as errors in numerical computation, root finding, solution of algebraic equations, interpolation, numerical calculus, initial value problems, boundary value problems and eigenvalues. The underlying mathematical concepts are high-lighted through numerous worked-out examples. The section-end exercises contain plenty of problems with appropriate hints in order to motivate the students to work out problems for a deeper insight into subject concepts.
