Collection of original and influential papers by Walter Gautschi on a wide range of relevant topics and techniques
Includes historical essays on Euler and Christoffel, as well as biographical essays on several influential 20th-century numerical analysts, relating their work to Gautschi's
Integrates powerful software packages for orthogonal polynomials and their applications
Walter Gautschi has written extensively on topics ranging from special functions, quadrature and orthogonal polynomials to difference and differential equations, software implementations, and the history of mathematics. He is world renowned for his pioneering work in numerical analysis and constructive orthogonal polynomials, including a definitive textbook in the former, and a monograph in the latter area.
This three-volume set, Walter Gautschi: Selected Works with Commentaries, is a compilation of Gautschi’s most influential papers and includes commentaries by leading experts. The work begins with a detailed biographical section and ends with a section commemorating Walter’s prematurely deceased twin brother. This title will appeal to graduate students and researchers in numerical analysis, as well as to historians of science.
