**Introduction**

This is an excellent textbook on more
theoretical aspects of numerical analysis, yet presented with many
practical examples. The problems are enjoyable and interesting.
I would recommend it highly. Currently, I am working with Delbert
Franz on typesetting a complete solution manual to this book. You
can find the most recent version below.

**Status**

Currently I am working on finishing the solutions for Chapter 6 which introduced the modified Newton-Raphson iterations
in general function spaces. Delbert has provided solutions and commentary to the problems in the other chapters.
