Matrix iterative analysis by Richard S Varga( Book )
63 editions published between 1962 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the softcover reprint of a very popular hardcover edition, a revised version of the first edition, originally published by Prentice Hall in 1962 and regarded as a classic in its field. In some places, newer research results, e.g. results on weak regular splittings, have been incorporated in the revision, and in other places, new material has been added in the chapters, as well as at the end of chapters, in the form of additional up-to-date references and some recent theorems to give the reader some newer directions to pursue. The material in the new chapters is basically self-contained and more exercises have been provided for the readers. While the original version was more linear algebra oriented, the revision attempts to emphasize tools from other areas, such as approximation theory and conformal mapping theory, to access newer results of interest. The book should be of great interest to researchers and graduate students in the field of numerical analysis
Functional analysis and approximation theory in numerical analysis by Richard S Varga( Book )

Scientific computation on mathematical problems and conjectures by Richard S Varga( Book )
17 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and Chinese and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Studies the use of scientific computation as a tool in attacking a number of mathematical problems and conjectures. In this case, scientific computation refers primarily to computations that are carried out with a large number of significant digits, for calculations associated with a variety of numerical techniques such as the (second) Remez algorithm in polynomial and rational approximation theory, Richardson extrapolation of sequences of numbers, the accurate finding of zeros of polynomials of large degree, and the numerical approximation of integrals by quadrature techniques. The goal of this book is not to delve into the specialized field dealing with the creation of robust and reliable software needed to implement these high-precision calculations, but rather to emphasize the enormous power that existing software brings to the mathematician's arsenal of weapons for attacking mathematical problems and conjectures. Scientific Computation on Mathematical Problems and Conjectures includes studies of the Bernstein Conjecture of 1913 in polynomial approximation theory, the "1/9" Conjecture of 1977 in rational approximation theory, the famous Riemann Hypothesis of 1859, and the Polya Conjecture of 1927. The emphasis of this monograph rests strongly on the interplay between hard analysis and high-precision calculations

Geršgorin and his circles by Richard S Varga( Book )
16 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and German and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book studies the original results, and their extensions, of the Russian mathematician, S.A. Geršgorin, who wrote a seminal paper in 1931, on how to easily obtain estimates of all n eigenvalues (characteristic values) of any given n-by-n complex matrix. Since the publication of this paper, there has been many newer results spawned by his paper, and this book will be the first which is devoted solely to this resulting area. As such, it will include the latest research results, such as Brauer ovals of Cassini and Brualdi lemniscates, and their comparisons. This book is dedicated to the late

Pade and Rational Approximation
Solving ordinary differential equations by E Hairer( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The subject of this book is the solution of stiff differential equations and of differential-algebraic systems (differential equations with constraints). There is a chapter on one-step and extrapolation methods for stiff problems, another on multistep methods and general linear methods for stiff problems, a third on the treatment of singular perturbation problems, and a last one on differential-algebraic problems with applications to constrained mechanical systems. The beginning of each chapter is of introductory nature, followed by practical applications, the discussion of numerical results, theoretical investigations on the order and accuracy, linear and nonlinear stability, convergence and asymptotic expansions. Stiff and differential-algebraic problems arise everywhere in scientific computations (e.g. in physics, chemistry, biology, control engineering, electrical network analysis, mechanical systems). Many applications as well as computer programs are presented. Ernst Hairer and Gerhard Wanner were jointly awarded the 2003 Peter Henrici Prize at ICIAM 2003 in Sydney, Australia
Encyclopaedia of Mathematics, Supplement III by Shreeram Shankar Abhyankar( )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the third supplementary volume to Kluwer's highly acclaimed twelve-volume Encyclopaedia of Mathematics. This additional volume contains nearly 500 new entries written by experts and covers developments and topics not included in the previous volumes. These entries are arranged alphabetically throughout and a detailed index is included. This supplementary volume enhances the existing twelve volumes, and together, these thirteen volumes represent the most authoritative, comprehensive and up-to-date Encyclopaedia of Mathematics available
Computational methods and function theory : proceedings of a conference, held in Valparaíso, Chile, March 13-18, 1989 by Stephan Ruscheweyh( )
3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The volume is devoted to the interaction of modern scientific computation and classical function theory. Many problems in pure and more applied function theory can be tackled using modern computing facilities: numerically as well as in the sense of computer algebra. On the other hand, computer algorithms are often based on complex function theory, and dedicated research on their theoretical foundations can lead to great enhancements in performance. The contributions - original research articles, a survey and a collection of problems - cover a broad range of such problems
