Beside providing a foundation in modern numerical-approximation techniques, Burden and Faires' well-respected Numerical Analysis, Sixth Edition, explains how, why, and when the techniques can be expected to work. The authors use real-life problems from areas such as engineering, computer science, biology, and physics to show students how numerical methods are applied. more than 2,000 exercises are included, ranging from elementary applications of methods and algorithms to more rigorous generalizations and extensions of theory. Where appropriate, the text demonstrates how computer algebra systems can be of value in solving these problems. As with earlier editions, this text is designed to give students the preparation they need to pass the Actuaries' examination in Numerical Methods. To that end, the edition includes many more exercises of the type often found on the exam.
