First Steps in Numerical Analysis
by R. Hosking, S. Joe, D. Joyce, and J. Turner
Number of pages: 338
This book provides an excellent introduction to the elementary concepts and methods of numerical analysis for students meeting the subject for the first time. The subject matter is organized into fundamental topics and presented as a series of steps. At the end of each step, checkpoints are included to allow the reader to gauge their understanding of the concepts introduced.

In these notes, we describe the design of a small C++ program which solves numerically the sine-Gordon equation. The program is build progressively to make it multipurpose and easy to modify to solve any system of partial differential equations.

This course takes a tour through many algorithms of numerical analysis. We aim to assess alternative methods based on efficiency, to discern well-posed problems from ill-posed ones, and to see these methods in action through computer implementation.
