: Numerical mathematics is a subtopic ofscientific computing. The focuslies on the efficiencyof algorithms, i.e. speed, reliability, and robustness.This leads to adaptive algorithms.The theoreticalderivation und analysesof algorithmsare kept as elementary as possible in this book the neededsligtly advancedmathematical theory is summarized in the appendix.Numerous figures and illustrating examples explain the complex data,as non-trivial examples serve problems from nanotechnology, chirurgy, and physiology. The bookaddressesstudents as well aspractitioners inmathematics, naturalsciences, and engineering.It is designed as atextbook but also suitable for self study.
