The Finite Element Method: Theory, Implementation, and Applications | Mats G. Larson | SpringerThe closed form solutions are either extremely difficult to obtain or not available for many engineering problems. Hence one has to resort to numerical methods. Each of these methods has its own merits and demerits. The choice of an appropriate method for the solution of any particular problem depends on investigator's familiarity of the method and nature of the problem. The aim of this book is to introduce FEM as a general numerical technique for the solution of various engineering problems.

It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. Authors: Larson , Mats G. This book gives an introduction to the finite element method as a general computational method for solving partial differential equations approximately. Our approach is mathematical in nature with a strong focus on the underlying mathematical principles, such as approximation properties of piecewise polynomial spaces, and variational formulations of partial differential equations, but with a minimum level of advanced mathematical machinery from functional analysis and partial differential equations. In principle, the material should be accessible to students with only knowledge of calculus of several variables, basic partial differential equations, and linear algebra, as the necessary concepts from more advanced analysis are introduced when needed. Throughout the text we emphasize implementation of the involved algorithms, and have therefore mixed mathematical theory with concrete computer code using the numerical software MATLAB is and its PDE-Toolbox.
