Computer Science and Applied Mathematics: Introduction to Numerical Computations, Second Edition introduces numerical algorithms as they are used in practice. This edition covers the usual topics contained in introductory numerical analysis textbooks that include all of the well-known and most frequently used algorithms for interpolation and approximation, numerical differentiation and integration, solution of linear systems and nonlinear equations, and solving ordinary differential equations. A complete discussion of computer arithmetic, problems that arise in the computer evaluation of functions, and cubic spline interpolation are also provided. This text likewise discusses the Newton formulas for interpolation and adaptive methods for integration. The level of this book is suitable for advanced undergraduate students and readers with elementary mathematical background.
