Description

Multigrid presents both an elementary introduction to multigrid methods for solving partial differential equations and a contemporary survey of advanced multigrid techniques and real-life applications.

Multigrid methods are invaluable to researchers in scientific disciplines including physics, chemistry, meteorology, fluid and continuum mechanics, geology, biology, and all engineering disciplines. They are also becoming increasingly important in economics and financial mathematics.

Readers are presented with an invaluable summary covering 25 years of practical experience acquired by the multigrid research group at the Germany National Research Center for Information Technology. The book presents both practical and theoretical points of view.

Review Text

"...Multigrid is a useful book in many respects. It gives a clear introduction to the student, it is a handbook for the practitioner, and for the expert it is a good reference and a nice compilation of knowledge..." - Pieter W. Hemker in SIAM Review, Vol. 44, No. 1, 2002

"Multigrid is easily the best practical textbook in existence on multigrid methods...it represents a comprehensive guide with numerous valuable suggestions, warnings and hints which could previously have been learned only with direct contact with experts..." - Irad Yavneh in ZAMM- Journal of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics 83, No.11, 2003
