The death of Vishnu by Manil Suri ( Book )
33 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and Thai and held by 2,148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"At the opening of this novel, Vishnu, the resident odd-job man, lies dying on the staircase he inhabits, while his neighbors the Pathaks and the Asranis squabble over who will pay for an ambulance. As the action spirals up through the floors of their building, the dramas of the residents' lives unfold: Mr. Jalal's obsessive search for higher meaning; Vinod Taneja's longing for the wife he has lost; the comic elopement of Kavita Asrani, who fancies herself the heroine of a Hindi movie." "Suffused with Hindu mythology and the exuberance of Bombay cinema, this story of one apartment building becomes a metaphor for the social and religious divisions of contemporary India, and Vishnu's ascent of the staircase parallels the soul's progress through the various stages of existence. As Vishnu closes in on the riddle of his own mortality, he begins to wonder whether he might not be the god Vishnu, guardian not only of the fate of the building and its occupants but also of the entire universe."--Jacket

"Mumbai has emptied under the threat of imminent nuclear annihilation; gangs of marauding Hindu and Muslim thugs rove the desolate streets; yet Sarita can think of only one thing: buying the last pomegranate that remains in perhaps the entire city. She is convinced that the fruit holds the key to reuniting her with her physicist husband, Karun, who has been mysteriously missing for more than a fortnight."--Provided by publisher

The city of Devi a novel by Manil Suri ( )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As Mumbai empties under the threat of imminent nuclear annihilation, Sarita, a thirtythree-year-old statistician, can only think of being reunited with her physicist husband. Why has he vanished? How will they form the family of three he's always wanted? To find him, Sarita must journey across the surreal landscape of a near-abandoned city, braving gangs of competing Hindu and Muslim hoodlums. Joining her is Jaz--nominally a Muslim but whose true religion has always been sex with other men. Danger lurks around every corner, but so does the incongruous and the absurd: the patron goddess Devi Ma has even materialized on a beach to save her city. Sarita's search leads her to this beach, thrusting her into a trinity so mercurial, so consuming, that it will alter her life more fundamentally than any apocalypse to come

On the stability and convergence of higher order mixed finite element methods for second order elliptic problems by Manil Suri ( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "We investigate the use of higher-order mixed methods for second order elliptic problems by establishing refined stability and convergence estimates which take into account both the mesh size h and polynomial degree p. Our estimates yield asymptotic convergence rates for the p and h-p versions of the finite element method. They also describe more accurately than previously proved estimates the increased the rate of convergence expected when the h-version is used with higher order polynomials. For our analysis, we choose the Raviart-Thomas and the Brezzi-Douglas-Marini elements and establish optimal rates of convergence in both h and p (up to an arbritrary [epsilon] [is greater than] 0)."
