Reviews

"The book evolves like a numerical course where the historical aspects are somewhat expanded at the expense of the numerical issues, but the main formulas and ideas are there. The numerics are however too thin to be useful as lecture notes for a course on numerical analysis. Therefore the book can only serve as additional literature to accompany a true course about the numerics." (Adhemar Bultheel, European Mathematical Society, euro-math-soc.eu, March 20, 2019)
