Format: Paperback
This book could be viewed as an abridged/updated version of the classic earlier text by the author. However, it has significantly less content than the earlier book. I'm not sure what to make of this book. No overall consistent theme. Some topics treated in an ad-hoc manner. The book is ok if you already know the material, but I can see that it would be difficult and confusing for a beginner in this field.

It appears to me that this book was written in order to remove all of the rigorous mathematical details of the Richtmyer and Morton book on Finite Difference Methods. I would not use this as a text for any course in numerical PDE. As strange as this may sound, books on CFD tend to do a better job at numerical analysis but a poor job at CFD! I would shop around until you find something you feel comfortable with. This one just doesn't do it for me.

Format: Paperback
This book is a good starter for understanding how to numerically solve (Partial Differential Equations)PDE's. The chapters are arranged in an orderly manner and hints are provided then and there so that you wont need to switch back and forth between them. I myself a researcher in the field of Finite Element Analysis, which extensively involves PDE's for implementing the Finite element model. A thorough knowlegde of PDE's and the nature of their solutions is very important for such fields. This book is definitely the one which describes the nature of PDE's solutions and their interpretation, boundedness and applicability.
