Notes for Numerical Methods by M Usman Hamid These notes are initially provided by Mr. Anwar Khan. Later the updated version is send by Muhammad Tahir. We are really very thankful to Mr. Anwar Khan and Muhammad Tahir for providing these notes and appreciates their effort to publish these notes on

The area of mathematics known as numerical analysis offers instruments and strategies for resolving mathematical issues in numerical form. In numerical analysis, our main areas of interest are the use and evaluation of numerical algorithms that aim to provide a rough answer to a mathematical issue.

Numerical algorithm refers to a comprehensive collection of steps that provides a rough answer to a mathematical problem.

A good numerical algorithm depends upon the following properties:

  1. Number of computations i.e. Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division.
  2. Applicable to a class of problems.
  3. Speed of convergence.
  4. Error management.
  5. Stability.

It covers the syllabus of Numerical Analysis paper of MSc Mathematics or a course in BS Mathematics. See the contents of the notes given below to see the topics covered by these notes.
