Editorial Reviews


From the reviews:

G.M. Phillips

Interpolation and Approximation by Polynomials

"A very nicely written textbook to learn about polynomial interpolation and approximation."


"This book contains selected topics from approximation theory. The author discusses one of ‘the most’ classic part of approximation theory, the interpolation theory and two related fields … . The selection of the areas, the lot of worked examples, the exercises and problems at the end of each section and the algorithms included and detailed … makes this book perfect for everyone’s approximation book." (Béla Nagy, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Vol. 69, 2003)

"This is a very nicely written textbook to learn about polynomial interpolation and approximation. … Throughout the book nice sets of ‘Problems’ are placed … ." (Marcel G. de Bruin, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1023, 2003)

“This monograph may be considered as the successor of P. Davis’ Interpolation and Approximation (1963) … . it is an excellent introduction to the topic. … This book is well suited for a course on numerical analysis and approximation theory with emphasis on the topic mentioned in the title. … even more a course book because each section ends with a list of exercises, and the text contains many explicit examples.” (Adhemar Bultheel, Bulletin of the Belgian Mathematical Society, 2007)

From the Back Cover

 This book covers the main topics concerned with interpolation and approximation by polynomials. This subject can be traced back to the precalculus era but has enjoyed most of its growth and development since the end of the nineteenth century and is still a lively and flourishing part of mathematics. In addition to coverage of univariate interpolation and approximation, the text includes material on multivariate interpolation and multivariate numerical integration, a generalization of the Bernstein polynomials that has not previously appeared in book form, and a greater coverage of Peano kernel theory than is found in most textbooks. There are many worked examples and each section ends with a number of carefully selected problems that extend the student's understanding of the text.

George Phillips has lectured and researched in mathematics at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. His most recent book, Two Millenia of Mathematics: From Archimedes to Gauss (Springer 2000), received enthusiastic reviews in the USA, Britain and Canada. He is well known for his clarity of writing and his many contributions as a researcher in approximation theory.

Format: Hardcover
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in numerical analysis, applied mathematics or approximation theory. First because polynomials are often the foundation and this books gives you much of the knowledge and basic tricks needed to be in control of them. Secondly because this book is a little gem of clarity that will enlighten you to the point where you may start to get a glimps of the beauty of mathematics. It is very well written book and joy to read.
