This book is for students following an introductory course in numerical methods, numerical techniques or numerical analysis. It introduces MATLAB as a computing environment for experimenting with numerical methods. It approaches the subject from a pragmatic viewpoint; theory is kept at a minimum commensurate with comprehensive coverage of the subject and it contains abundant worked examples which provide easy understanding through a clear and concise theoretical treatment. This edition places even greater emphasis on 'learning by doing' than the previous edition.

Fully documented MATLAB code for the numerical methods described in the book will be available as supplementary material to the book on

Editorial Reviews

From the book reviews:"For the reader who is looking to incorporate numerical methods into their field without diving too deep into the analysis, the authors' order of presentation is very appealing. . The chapters of this book cover almost everything that one would expect in a numerical methods book. The authors hold true to their endeavor to teach by example, including numerous motivating problems and worked solutions." (Chris Vogl, SIAM Review, Vol. 56 (3), September, 2014)
