This textbook is designed to introduce undergraduates in math, computer science, engineering, and related fields to the principles and practice of numerical computation. Our approach emphasizes linear algebra and approximation. The text presents mathematical underpinnings and analysis, complemented with 45 functions and over 160 examples coded in MATLAB, all available for download. Previous experience in MATLAB is not required. The text is organized to be useful for either a one-semester introduction or two-semester sequence, with the most advanced techniques and concepts held back for the second half of the book.
