About the book
The rapid advances made in high speed computing and the revision of curriculum of undergraduate and postgraduate programs both at national and international levels have led to many need based changes and new features in this edition causing it to differ substantially from the first edition.
Although numerical methods have always been useful, their role in the present day scientific computations and research is of fundamental importance. The contents of this self-contained text book on computational numerical methods have been organized in a logical order and the topics are discussed in a systematic manner.
A new chapter on features and fundamentals of C language
QR method and Chebyshev polynomials with applications to Lanczos process of economization of power series
Supplemented with algorithms and C programs of standard numerical methods common in use
Enriched with solved examples and variety of exercises at the end of each chapter
Helps students solve problems both manually and via computers for clarity of concepts
Exhaustive bibliography and an appendix containing useful iterative methods including Descartes method for the solution of nonlinear complex equations
