Publisher Synopsis

'The authors of this volume on finite difference and finite element methods provide a sound and complete exposition of these two numerical techniques for solving differential equations. The text is divided into two independent parts, tackling the finite difference and finite element methods separately. The parts offer a balanced mix of theory, application, and examples to offer readers a thorough introduction to the material. They utilize MATLAB programming to provide various codes illustrating the applications and examples. ... Overall, the textbook offers a solid introduction to finite difference methods and finite element methods that should be useful to graduate students in mathematics as well as to students in applied and interdisciplinary fields, such as engineering and economics, who need to solve differential equations numerically.'
