Rapidsol Numerical Methods (Pbi U)


The present book provides a comprehensive treatment of the concepts and topics by giving a vast variety of examples fully solved. The entire subject matter has been arranged in a systematic, graded, simple, lucid and exhaustive manner. Each chapter begins with some definitions followed by theorems with complete proofs and solved problems. A large number of notes and remarks have been added for a better understanding of the subject.


Bisection Method, Regula-falsi method, Sectant method, Fixed – point iteration and Newton-Raphson method and convergence of Secant, Newton- Raphson method and fixed-point iteration. Pivoting strategies, Partial Pivoting, Gauss-Elimination, Gauss Jordan and Triangularisation method, Jacobi Method, Gauss Seidel Method.

Interpolation : Finite differences, Divided differences, Newton Gregory Forward and Backward formula, Lagrange’s formula, Newton’s formulae, Central Differences, Stirling, Bessel’s and Everett’s formulae, Error in linear and quadratic interpolation.
