Mathematics 642:574 Numerical Analysis

Lecture Notes will be posted to the course web site after each class.
For those students who also wish to have another source for the material,
I recommend purchasing one of the following texts:

K. Atkinson, * An Introduction
to Numerical Analysis,*, (second edition), Wiley, 1989.

D. Kincaid and W. Cheney: *Mathematics of Scientific Computing*,
(third edition), American Mathematical Society, 2002.

A. Quarteroni, R. Sacco, and F. Saleri,
*Numerical Mathematics,*, (second edition), Springer, 2004.

J. Stoer and R. Bulirsch: *Introduction to Numerical Analysis*,
(third edition) Springer, 2002.

These books differ in the level of mathematical sophistication required,
so it is helpful to look at the different books before deciding which
one to purchase.

exceptional circumstances may be granted short extensions. Please see me as
soon as a problem arises.
