Numerical Methods for Scientists and Engineers (Dover Books on Mathematics) Reviews
Its easy to understand most of the methods included, the math theory or explanation is quite easy to understand in most cases as oppossed to "Numerical Analysis" by L. Burden which is extremely convoluted. However this last book I mentioned is also more complete which brings me to the only downside I noticed on this book, while some numerical methods are described with such elegance and simplicity, other methods are just mentiond and the author didnt provide examples to such methods, other methods are missing, some methods are not described in depth. There are no solutions to any of the excercises at the end of each method/chapter.
I have been teaching numerical analysis for a long time now. I bought this book based on the author's name. I was not surprised to find out that my decision was totally correct. The book provides a clear and deep perception of basic concepts and techniques of numerical analysis that I hardly can find in texts on this subject matter.
Not a great book for self-studying but if you're having classes in the subject, it's really good.
Bought this book to replace hard cover textbook I somehow lost a while back. Serves as both a tutorial and reference and is well written. Classic book which is still relevant today.
It only covers some parts of modern numerical methods used in engineering and scientific areas. I personally think It is an out-of-date book. But it is still a good and classic book.
The book is fairly pedestrian--there is nothing inside the book you won't find covered in other numerical analysis textbooks. Furthermore, the book is dated (1962) and the techniques are all 'classical'. The bulk of the text is devoted to polynomial approximation and Fourier approximation with a solid introduction to general numerical methods, algorithms, error analysis, etc. There are two distinguishing features for the book:
Very good introductory textbook. The text is not new but it is very well written. The author tries to remove informations that are not necessary at the moment and he concentrates on inportant things.
It is a good one and a right choice for me. I also recommend everyone to purchase for this item if you need it.
