Spectral/hp Element Methods for Computational Fluid Dynamics

Second Edition

George Karniadakis and Spencer Sherwin

Numerical Mathematics and Scientific Computation

  • Completely revised and expanded new edition — over 50% new material covering the recent and significant progress in multi-domain spectral methods
  • Broad readership — in computational fluid mechanics, applied and numerical mathematics, computational mechanics, aerospace and mechanical engineering and climate/ocean modelling
  • Contains theoretical and implementation material and state-of-the art results
  • Graded exercises

New to this Edition:

  • Coverage of the important developments in discontinuous Galerkin methods, non-tensorial nodal spectral element methods in simplex domains and on stabilisation and filtering techniques
  • Modelling the spectral/hp element applied to less traditional fields, such as seismology, climate modelling and magneto-hydro-dynamics (MHD)
