This text introduces numerical methods by emphasizing the practical
aspects of their use. In the process the book establishes their limitations,
advantages and disadvantages. It is intended to assist future as well
as practicing engineers in fully understanding the fundamentals of
numerical methods.
takes an applicationoriented approach and discusses
theory only as needed.
integrates numerous computational exercise problems and
examples into each chapter to provide immediate connections
between principle and practice.
covers the most commonly used numerical methods in the field.
each chapter concludes with an entire section on realworld
applications from a variety of engineering disciplines.
