** About the book** FUNDAMENTALS OF NUMERICAL METHODS presents the fundamental concepts of numerical methods for the students of mathematics, physics and engineering. The text attempts to strike a balance between abstract and applied expositions of numerical analysis. Insofar as possible, each concept is developed in a clear and concise manner, and illustrated by pedagogically sound examples so that the material can be assimilated, even if the theoretical development is not fully understood. The book caters to the readers who are interested in the applications of numerical methods. It will also be of interest to the students of pure mathematics who are exposed to the numerical methods for the first time. |
