Introduction to numerical analysis. Translated from the German by R. Bartels, W. Gautschi and C. Witzgall. 2. ed. (English) Zbl 0771.65002
Texts in Applied Mathematics. 12. New York: Springer-Verlag. xiii, 660 p. (1993).
[For the first edition (1980) see Zbl 0423.65002).]
The new edition of this well written book is enlarged by the following topics: \(B\)-splines and their computation, elimination methods for large sparse systems of linear equations, Lanczos algorithm for eigenvalue problems, implicit shift techniques for the \(LR\) and \(QR\) algorithm, implicit differential equations, differential algebraic systems, new methods for stiff differential equations, preconditioning techniques and convergence rate of the conjugate gradient algorithm and multigrid methods for boundary value problems.
