This represents many years of work on preparing a free on-line text book for numerical
analysis specifically targeting electrical and computer engineering. The first author first
began working on this text in the Fall 2005 term when he taught ECE 204 Numerical Methods for
Computer Engineers. The second author joined in 2010 contributing sections in optimization having previously
contributed numerous suggestions.
While this text does not use the wiki format, suggestions and comments
are more than welcome. If you believe that another topic deserves to be present, please let the
authors know and we will make every attempt to accomodate you.
