These notes were originally prepared during Fall quarter 2003 for UCSD Math 174, NumericalMethods. In writing these notes, it was not my intention to add to the glut of Numerical Analysistexts; they were designed to complement the course text,
Numerical Mathematics and Computing,
Fourth edition, by Cheney and Kincaid . As such, these notes follow the conventions of thattext fairly closely. If you are at all serious about pursuing study of Numerical Analysis, you shouldconsider acquiring that text, or any one of a number of other ﬁne texts by
, Epperson, Hamming,etc. [3, 4, 5].
