Numerical Analysis for Applied Science is a graduate-level text suitable for both scientists and engineers as well as applied mathematicians. Each chapter begins with the motivation and construction of the methods under discussion moves on to practical considerations associated with their implementation, and concludes with an in-depth treatment of rigorous mathematical details. The chapter-end problem sets include both theoretical and computational exercises.
