For Immediate Release – Lawton, OK, Sept. 28, 2005 Cameron professor authors new math textbook Cameron University Mathematical Sciences Professor Ioannis K. Argyros, Ph.D., has authored a new textbook, entitled Newton Methods, which was recently published by Nova Science Publishers Corporation in New York. The book focuses on numerical methods for solving equations. It is designed to assist researchers, practitioners and students in efficiently utilizing Isaac Newton’s methodologies to approximate solutions of equations to real life problems arising in engineering, mathematical programming, mathematical physics and mathematical economics. The production of the book was partially supported by a Cameron University Academic Initiatives Grant. Several students also participated in the production of the textbook as part of their course work. In order to gain working experience, the students produced numerical results in the exercises of the book’s introductory chapters. “I am extremely proud of this textbook,” Argyros said. “It is broad in its scope and has the potential to assist professors and students, as well as researchers and workers in many of the related fields. I am also very proud of the effort the students invested in this project.” Argyros has published 12 monographs/books and more than 450 peer reviewed articles in computational mathematics. He is also currently at the editorial board of 11 mathematical journals. – 30 – PR#05-214 Editors and Broadcasters: For details, contact CU Government & Community Relations at 580.581.2211.
