First Steps in Numerical Analysis
by R. Hosking, S. Joe, D. Joyce, and J. Turner
Number of pages: 338
This book provides an excellent introduction to the elementary concepts and methods of numerical analysis for students meeting the subject for the first time. The subject matter is organized into fundamental topics and presented as a series of steps. At the end of each step, checkpoints are included to allow the reader to gauge their understanding of the concepts introduced.

The solution of time dependent equations of hydrodynamics is a subject of great importance. This book is mainly concentrated on the study of the stability of the various schemes. We have considered only the stability for linearized problems.
