Introduction to Finite and Spectral Element Methods using MATLAB

Introduction to Finite and Spectral Element Methods using MATLAB

Written for students and engineers in the fields of science and engineering, this introductory text provides a means of quickly understanding both the theoretical foundations and practical implementation of the finite and spectral element methods. The book is suitable for both self-study and formal course work, and its state-of-the-art review of the field makes it equally valuable as a professional reference. Topics covered include Lagrangian formulations, free-boundary problems, infinite elements, and discontinuous Galerkin methods.

MATLAB is introduced and used to solve numerous examples in the book. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB M-files is available for download.
