· Clearer, simpler descriptions and explanations of
the various numerical methods
· Windows based software
· Two new types of numerical problems; accurately
solving partial differential equations with the included software and computing line integrals in the complex plane.
Precise numerical analysis may be defined as the study of computer methods for solving mathematical problems either exactly or to prescribed accuracy. This book explains how precise numerical analysis is constructed. It includes a CD-ROM which contains executable Windows XP programs for the PC and which demonstrates how these programs can be used to solve typical problems of elementary numerical analysis with precision. The book also provides exercises which illustrate points from the text and references for the methods presented.
Beginning classes in Numerical Analysis taught out of Computer Science or Engineering Departments. Also Math Departments where it is taught to students of other disciplines. European technical schools and universities, especially Germany, would have strong interest in a book on interval arithmetic. The guaranteed accuracy of this software makes it very desirable for engineers and scientists who need to solve numerical problems in their work
