PressestimmenFrom the reviews of the first edition:
"This book is an introduction to the numerical methods that are frequently used in science and engineering undergraduate courses and it is based on the MATLAB programming environment. ... The text is easy to read even for those who have little experience with computer practice. ... There are three appendices and the most useful of them, about 70 pages, gives solutions to the tasks at the end of chapters." (Matti Vuorinen, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1076, 2006)
