The new Ninth Edition of Burden and Faires well-respected Numerical Analysis provides a foundation in modern numerical-approximation techniques. Explaining how, why, and when the techniques can be expected to work, the Ninth Edition places on even greater emphasis on building readers? intuition to help them understand why the techniques presented work in general, and why, in some situations, they fail.
