\(p\)- and \(hp\)-finite element methods. Theory and applications in solid and fluid mechanics. (English) Zbl 0910.73003
Numerical Mathematics and Scientific Computation. Oxford: Clarendon Press. xii, 374 p. (1998).
This book resulted from courses on finite element analysis taught by the author in 1989/96 in Zürich. As such, the text is intended as an up-to-date view of the mathematical techniques used to establish \(p\)- or spectral convergence results of higher order, and \(hp\)- and spectral element methods. The investigation of where and when such methods are recommended in preference to the more classical \(h\)-version of finite elements is carefully presented with emphasis on singularly perturbed problems.
The book is recommended to graduate mathematical students and engineers seeking a good reference text on the title problem.
