Transcendental equations arise in every branch of science and engineering. While most of these equations are easy to solve, some are not, and that is where this book serves as the mathematical equivalent of a skydiver's reserve parachuteAnot always needed, but indispensable when it is. The authorAs goal is to teach the art of finding the root of a single algebraic equation or a pair of such equations. Solving Transcendental Equations is unique in that it is the first book to describe the Chebyshev-proxy rootfinder, which is the most reliable way to find all zeros of a smooth function on the interval, and the very reliable spectrally enhanced Weyl bisection/marching triangles method for bivariate rootfinding, and it includes three chapters on analytical methodsAexplicit solutions, regular pertubation expansions, and singular perturbation series (including hyperasymptotics)Aunlike other books that give only numerical algorithms for solving algebraic and transcendental equations. This book is written for specialists in numerical analysis and will also appeal to mathematicians in general. It can be used for introductory and advanced numerical analysis classes, and as a reference for engineers and others working with difficult equations.This book is written for specialists in numerical analysis and will also appeal to mathematicians in general.
