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. The book also provides exercises which illustrate points from the text and references for the methods presented.

All disc-based content for this title is now available on the Web.



- Clearer, simpler descriptions and explanations of
the various numerical methods
- Two new types of numerical problems; accurately
solving partial differential equations with the included software and computing line integrals in the complex plane.
