Aus den Rezensionen

*My proposed first sentence
was:
"The author discusses valueless measures in pointless spaces."*

―Paul Halmos,

*A reader cannot fail to be struck of the unity of mathematics. … The remarkably attractive book is
full
of small touches. … The story is beautifully told. … The contest was a true success and so is this book.
*

―Gilbert Strang, MIT. Review in: Science 307 (2005), pp. 521–522.

contender―especially if I had a solar-powered laptop on which to try out the codes and ideas!

―Nick Higham, University of Manchester. Review in: SIAM Review 47 (2005), pp. 382–383.

lively mathematicians. Anyone … is strongly urged … to plunge in―computer in hand―to this fine

advertisement for constructive mathematics 21st-century style.

―Jon Borwein, Dalhousie University. Review in: Mathematical Intelligencer 27-4 (2005), pp. 40--48.

who takes numerical computation seriously. Even the story of how the book came to be is interesting.

*Perhaps the most significant contribution of this book,
however, is how it demonstrates that a set of
well-chosen problems can serve as basis for introducing a reader to an entire
field. Students can readily
see the motivation *f

*The reading of this book is highly recommended to everyone
interested in computing since the methods
used touch on virtually every major technique of modern numerical analysis.
*―Claude
Brezinski,
Université des Sciences et Technologies de Lille. Review in: Numerical
Algorithms 38 (2005),
p. 327.

*These problems lead the authors to consider
an amazing diversity of mathematical techniques.
**…
An excellent book.**
*―Willy Govaerts,
Universiteit Gent, Belgium. Review in: Zentralblatt
Zbl 1060.65002 .

*A fascinating journey through the world of numerical
mathematics.
*―Brian Bradie,
Christopher Newport University. Review in: Mathematical Reviews

*A book that could easily be titled "Techniques that Everyone Doing Numerical Computation Should Know". … It is a valuable addition
to the library of anyone who appreciates seeing the variety of ways that clever people think of when approaching a difficult problem.
*―Doug Faires,
Youngstown State University. Review in:

… Wer genügend Kenntnisse aus den Kerngebieten der Mathematik und speziellere aus der Numerik

besitzt, wird von dieser lebendigen und anregenden Darstellung begeistert sein.

*Destined to be a classic of
modern computational science―a gourmet feast in ten
courses.
More generally, this book provides a compelling answer to the question, "What is
numerical analysis?"*

―David H. Bailey, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. In: the Foreword.

and its ten computational problems. … This book tells the story of each problem and the

areas of mathematics it connects to with a depth I would never have imagined possible.

ideas with working code. ... Nicely written with an excellent bibliography.
