Abstract

With more and more practical problems of applied mathematics appearing in different disciplines, such as chemistry, biology, geology, management and economics, to mention just a few, the demand for numerical computation has considerably increased. These problems frequently have no analytical solution or the exact result is time-consuming to derive. To solve these problems, numerical techniques are used to approximate the result. This chapter introduces matrix algebra, numerical integration, differentiation and root finding.
