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.
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 October 2013 release of our Incompressible Flow & Iterative Solver Software (IFISS) Matlab and Octave toolbox. This is an open source software package and is associated with the second edition of our book Finite Elements and Fast Iterative Solvers with applications in incompressible fluid dynamics

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 second edition has three new chapters. You can check out the contents using Google books.

Readers requiring a 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.
