David J. Silvester (online CV)
I have a Chair in Numerical Analysis in the School of Mathematics.
My preferred email address is d.silvester (at)
I have supervised a number of PhD students and postdoctoral researchers over my academic career.
I also have a distinguished academic ancestry.
Some of my work is pretty highly cited: see Google Scholar or Researcher ID.
Please refer to my BiBTeX database if you want to cite my work.
You can take a peek at one of my recent lectures on SlidesLive.
I like to connect with people using Twitter.

Check out the latest release of our Incompressible Flow & Iterative Solver Software (IFISS) Matlab and Octave toolbox. This open source software package is associated with the second edition of Finite Elements and Fast Iterative Solvers with applications in incompressible fluid dynamics.

A gentle introduction to the mathematics underlying finite element convergence theory can be found in our Finite Element Primer.

Check out our highly-regarded (SUMS) textbook on Essential PDEs using Amazon books.
