Applied Numerical Analysis – Curtis F. Gerald – 7th Edition


The seventh edition of this classic text has retained the features that make it popular, while updating its treatment and inclusion of Computer Algebra Systems and Programming Languages. Interesting and timely applications motivate and enhance readers’ understanding of and analysis of results.

This text incorporates a balance of theory with techniques and applications, optional theory-based sections in each chapter. The exercise sets include additional challenging and projects which show practical applications of the material.

Also, sections which discuss the use of computer algebra systems such as Maple®, Mathematica®, and MATLAB®, facilitate the integration of technology in the course. Furthermore, the text incorporates programming material in both FORTRAN and C. The breadth of topics, such as partial , systems of nonlinear equations, and matrix algebra, provide comprehensive and flexible coverage of all aspects of .
