An important problem that arises in many scientific and engineering applications is that of approximating limits of infinite sequences which in most instances converge very slowly. Thus, to approximate limits with reasonable accuracy, it is necessary to compute a large number of terms, and this is in general costly. These limits can be approximated economically and with high accuracy by applying suitable extrapolation (or convergence acceleration) methods to a small number of terms. This state-of-the art reference for mathematicians, scientists and engineers is concerned with the coherent treatment, including derivation, analysis, and applications, of the most useful scalar extrapolation methods. The methods discussed are geared toward common problems in scientific and engineering disciplines. It differs from existing books by concentrateing on the most powerful nonlinear methods, presenting in-depth treatments of them, and showing which methods are most effective for different classes of practical nontrivial problems.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The book is an excellent support for the theoretical and practical studies of the speed-up methods based on extrapolation. It is a useful book for mathematicians interested in this field of research, but it can be used successfully by computer scientists and engineers.' Zentralblatt MATH
"This book, written by a leading expert in the field, is an excellent up-to-date account of the most useful extrapolation methods for sequences of scalars. The author has produced a book that is in complete agreement with its title: the methods it deals with are practical, and so are the problems they are applied to. Everything taken into account, this book will benefit both the theoretician and the practitioner. This book is quite pleasant to read. ...an excellent research monograph... The reviewer recommends Practical Extrapolation Methods very highly to all those interested in applying and/or learning the subject. He believes that it will remain that state-of-the-art reference in extrapolation methods and their applications for many years to come." David Levin, Tel Aviv University, Mathematics of Computation
"This book should be an excellent reference for practicing scientists and engineers who need in depth information about extrapolation methods and their applications." Mathematical Reviews
