Beside providing a foundation in modern numerical-approximation techniques, Burden and Faires' well-respected Numerical Analysis, Sixth Edition, explains how, why, and when the techniques can be expected to work. The authors use real-life problems from areas such as engineering, computer science, biology, and physics to show students how numerical methods are applied. more than 2,000 exercises are included, ranging from elementary applications of methods and algorithms to more rigorous generalizations and extensions of theory. Where appropriate, the text demonstrates how computer algebra systems can be of value in solving these problems. As with earlier editions, this text is designed to give students the preparation they need to pass the Actuaries' examination in Numerical Methods. To that end, the edition includes many more exercises of the type often found on the exam.

Richard L. Burden is Emeritus Professor of Mathematics at Youngstown State University. His master's degree in mathematics and doctoral degree in mathematics, with a specialization in numerical analysis, were both awarded by Case Western Reserve University. He also earned a masters degree in computer science from the University of Pittsburgh. His mathematical interests include numerical analysis, numerical linear algebra, and mathematical statistics. Dr. Burden has been named a distinguished professor for teaching and service three times at Youngstown State University. He was also named a distinguished chair as the chair of the Department of Mathematical and Computer Sciences. He wrote the Actuarial Examinations in Numerical Analysis from 1990 until 1999.
J. Douglas Faires, late of Youngstown State University, pursued mathematical interests in analysis, numerical analysis, mathematics history, and problem solving. Dr. Faires won numerous awards, including the Outstanding College-University Teacher of Mathematics by the Ohio Section of MAA and five Distinguished Faculty awards from Youngstown State University, which also awarded him an Honorary Doctor of Science award in 2006.
