## Reviews

*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

From the reviews:"This textbook is based on courses given by both authors at Georgia, Tech and is aimed directly at the early years undergraduates. It succeeds admirably in meeting the students' needs by including a plethora of set problems and worked examples. ... Moreover the way is then open in later years to general weighted residual formulations and applications to nonlinear and non-self-adjoint problems which are powerful tools in modern numerical codes."
