This book is the second part of a modern, two-volume introduction to numerical computation, which strongly emphasizes software aspects. It can serve as a textbook for courses on numerical analysis, particularly for engineers. The book can also be used as a reference book and it includes an extensive bibliography. The author is a well-known specialist in numerical analysis who was involved in the creation of the software package QUADPACK.
"The two volumes can be highly recommended for newcomers in the area as well as for people working for a long time in or with computer numerics."

..". This book is highly recommended to students, scientists, anad engineers interested in the numerical solution of mathematical problems. It is very useful as a handbook for both newcomers and experts. Every science/engineering/mathematics/computer science library should have a copy of this book."
