This text provides complete, clear, and detailed explanations of the principal numerical analysis methods including the Newton and Runge-Kutta methods of solving non-linear differential equations, and well known functions such as Bessel functions and Chebyshev polynomials, and many others used in science and engineering. These are illustrated with many practical examples. No previous MATLAB knowledge is required. Chaptet 1 and the inexpensive MATLAB Student Version (5 through 14) is all you need to get started. With this text you will learn numerical analysis with many real-world applications, MATLAB, and Spreadsheets simultaneously.
