For courses in Numerical Analysis.

Helps students construct and explore algorithms for solving science and engineering problems

** Numerical Analysis, 3rd Edition** is for students of engineering, science, mathematics, and computer science who have completed elementary calculus and matrix algebra. It covers both standard topics and some of the more advanced numerical methods used by computational scientists and engineers, while remaining readable and relevant for undergraduates.

Sauer discusses the fundamental concepts of numerical analysis: convergence, complexity, conditioning, compression, and orthogonality. Throughout, **Spotlight** features comment on each of these concepts as they are addressed, and make connections to other expressions of the same principle elsewhere in the book. The popular **Reality Check** in each chapter gives concrete, relevant examples of the way numerical methods lead to solutions of important scientic and technological problems; they can be used to launch individual or team projects. MATLAB^{®} is used throughout to demonstrate and implement numerical methods.
