Editorial Reviews

Review


"Though there is a lot of detailed technical material here, Karniadakis & Sherwin have written in a very visual style with good graphics scattered throughout the text in a helpful way. They have brought togetehr in one accessible volume a body of literature and have demonstrated the applicability and utility of this class of high-order numerical methods for differential equations."--Journal of Fluid Mechanics

Format: Hardcover
This book is thorough and self contained. It can serve as a very good text for someone who just begun to learn about the method. It can also serve as an excellent reference for someone who is already experienced in the method of spectral elements. It explains very clearly both the mathematical theory as well as the implementation details.

Format: Hardcover
This book gives a mathematically rigorous and self-contained presentation of the hp method for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The presentation begins with an introduction of the fundamental concepts related to both h and p methods using simple one-dimensional model PDEs and continues with the more complex PDEs governig multidimensional incompressible and compressible flows of practical interest. In addition to the clear and complete presentation of the mathematical theory, sufficient guidelines and implementation details are given throughout the presentation of the material. This book is very helpful to both newcomers in the field of CFD as well as experienced practitioners who wish to apply hp refinement methods in CFD.
