The main purpose of this book is to present various
methods of approximate solution of equations. Their practical value is
beyond doubt, but still little attention is paid to them either at
school or a college and so someone who has passed a college level higher
mathematics course usually has difficulty in solving a transcendental
equation of the simplest type. Not only engineers need to solve
equations, but also technicians, production technologists and people in
other professions as well. It is also good for high-school students to
become acquainted with the methods of approximate solution of equations.
Since most approximate solution methods involve the idea of the
derivative we were forced to introduce this concept. We did this
intuitively, making use of a geometric interpretation. Hence, a
knowledge of secondary school mathematics will be sufficient for anyone
wanting to read this book.

The book was translated from the Russian by Mark Samokhvalov and was first published by Mir in 1979.  All credits to the original uploader.
