ab: The multiplication $“3 \times 9"$ in the book’s title is not a
reference to the content but indicates its subdivision into the three
parts: { indent=6mm \item{‒} Part I: Numerical linear algebra (71
pages), \item{‒} Part II: Numerical analysis (86 pages), \item{‒}
Part III: Numerics of ordinary differential equations (84 pages), }
each of them subdivided into nine short chapters. The next 90 pages
contain a wide collection of exercises for each chapter. The last four
chapters of the book are entitled { indent=6mm \item{‒} Chapter 31:
Results from linear algebra, (4 pages) \item{‒} Chapter 32: Results
from analysis (4 pages), \item{‒} Chapter 33: An introduction to C (7
pages), \item{‒} Chapter 34: An introduction to Matlab (17 pages). }
The organization of the book corresponds to courses given by the author
at the universities of Bonn and Freiburg (Germany). The material of
each chapter is adequate for a ninety minutes lecture and hence the
book can serve as the basis of a one semester course introducing basic
topics of numerical analysis. The numerical methods are not presented
in their most general form and the interested reader should consult
more specialized literature. In correspondence to the didactic aim of
the book, each chapter is concluded by a section entitled “Aims of
the chapter, quiz and an application".
