Format: Hardcover
Unlike most other books on the market this book focuses on the strong analytical and mathematical underpinnings of the FEM. Thus, the advanced reader is left with a deep understanding of the method and its modern extensions. There is a good blend of applications too!

Format: Hardcover
This book gives an excellent presentation of the mathematics behind the FEM that can also be understood by engineers. A very strong point is the intensive discussion of errors, not only the discretization error but all possible errors that might occur during the complete idealization process.

By practical reasons, the theory presented is mostly limited to two-dimensional problems but results can easily transferred to 3-dimensional problems.

Although the book is on theory, it has been of extremely practical value to me. There is nothing more practical than a good theory.
