## Description

From the back cover: The book “includes a complete treatment of linear multistep methods whilst maintaining its unique and comprehensive emphasis on Runge-Kutta methods and general linear methods.

“Although the specialist topics are taken to an advanced level, the entry point to the volume as a whole is not especially demanding. Early chapters provide a wide-ranging introduction to differential equations and difference equations together with a survey of numerical differential equation methods, based on the fundamental Euler method and more sophisticated methods presented as generalizations of Euler.

“Feature of the book include:

- Introductory work on differential and difference equations.
- A comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of solving ordinary differential equations numerically.
- A detailed analysis of Runge-Kutta methods and of linear multistep methods.
- A complete study of general linear methods from both theoretical and practical points of view.
- The latest results on practical general linear methods and their implementation.
- A balance between informal discussion and rigorous mathematical style.
- Examples and exercises integrated into each chapter enhancing the suitability of the book as a course or a self-study treatise.

“Written in a lucid style by one of the world’s leading authorities on numerical methods for ordinary differential equations and drawing upon his vast experience, this new edition provides an accessible and self-contained introduction, ideal for researchers and students following courses on numerical methods, engineering and other sciences.”
