Extrapolation methods, theory and practice
Studies in computational mathematics, vol.2, North-Holland, Amsterdam, 1991, 464p. (disk included)
This volume is a self-contained, exhaustive exposition of the extrapolation methods theory, and of the various algorithms and procedures for accelerating the convergence of scalar and vector sequences. Many subroutines (written in FORTRAN 77) with instructions for their use are provided on a floppy disk in order to demonstrate to those working with sequences the advantages of the use of extrapolation methods. Many numerical examples showing the effectiveness of the procedures and a consequent chapter on applications are also provided n including some never before published results and applications. Although intended for researchers in the field, and for those using extrapolation methods for solving particular problems, this volume also provides a valuable resource for graduate courses on the subject.
Concerning the software, there is no documentation or tutorial available, but each subroutine have its main program with an example of call. Only source files are provided and a Fortran compiler is needed.
To install the library, download the archive file, and unpack it in the selected directory.
