Preface

This book constitutes the second part in a two-part series describing methods for finding roots of polynomials. In general most of such methods are numerical (iterative), but one chapter in Part 2 is devoted to “analytic” methods for polynomials of degree up to five.

It is hoped that the series will be useful to anyone doing research into methods of solving polynomials (including the history of such methods), or who needs to solve many low- to medium-degree polynomials and/or some or many high-degree ones in an industrial or scientific context. Where appropriate, the location of good computer software for some of the best methods is pointed out. The series will also be useful as a text for a graduate course in polynomial root-finding. ...
