Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Numerical Analysis] is a solid narrative of mathematical aspects of numerical analysis with an 'inquiry-based' learning method. . . . There are more than 350 frequently challenging exercises that will interest both beginning students and readers with strong mathematical backgrounds."--Choice

"A student who picks up this book and works through it systematically will learn a lot of interesting and important mathematics."--David S. Watkins, SIAM Review

"Students will be able to go beyond an elementary understanding of numerical simulation and develop deep insights into the foundations of the subject. They will no longer have to accept the mathematical gaps that exist in current textbooks."--World Book Industry

From the Inside Flap

"Very few modern books can be compared with the present text as an introduction to the mathematical aspects of numerical analysis. This is a very interesting book that can be used not only as a textbook but also as a reference."--Doron Levy, University of Maryland

"This is a strong text, one that is both modern and provides historical perspective."--Benjamin Fearing Akers, University of Illinois at Chicago

I bought this book to use in the author's class at UChicago. I would recommend finding a different book as an introduction to numerical analysis.

While it is a very thorough mathematical treatment, and lots of proof exercises, it has virtually no "pencil-pushing" exercises, making it hard to ground and retain the knowledge earned. The book also contains dozens of typos.

I bought this book to lighten my back pack, since I have a copy of the paper version. I think that this is a wonderful book, but the publisher did not do a good job of producing the Kindle edition. If for example you look at Chapter 6, you will see that the norm symbols are just omitted; you can just guess what the results might mean. Since I did not need to look up something in the book until I had it a few weeks, I cannot return it, even though it is clearly defective. I am not a happy camper.

Kindle edition is riddled with errors. You are better off purchasing the text or going and getting the PDF version for free.
