The book provides an introduction to finite elements, iterative linear solvers
and scientific computing aimed at graduates in engineering, numerical analysis, applied mathematics
and interdisciplinary scientific computing.
The technically demanding theoretical aspects are largely
confined to the sections on the 'Theory of errors'. You can check out the contents from here using
Readers who would like a more gentle introduction to the mathematics underlying finite element convergence theory will find it useful to assimilate the material in our Finite Element Primer before reading the first chapter.
