Review from the previous edition '… an excellent tool both for self-study and for classroom teaching. It summarizes the state of the art well and provides a solid basis, through the programs that go with the book, for numerical experimentation and further development. All in all, this is a good book to have … I recommend it.' D. Denteneer, Mathematics of Computing

Review from the previous edition: '… this book grew out of notes for a statistical computing course … The goal of this course was to prepare the doctoral students with the computing tools needed for statistical research. I very much liked this book and recommend it for this use.' Jaromir Antoch, Zentralblatt für Mathematik

Review from the previous edition: '… a really nice introduction to numerical analysis. All the classical subjects of a numerical analysis course are discussed in a surprisingly short and clear way … When adapting the examples, the first half of the book can be used as a numerical analysis course for any other discipline …' Adhemar Bultheel, Bulletin of the Belgian Mathematical Society

Review from the previous edition: '… an extremely readable book. This would be an excellent book for a graduate-level course in statistical computing.' Journal of the American Statistical Association
