Numerical Solution of Differential Equations is a 10-chapter text that provides the numerical solution and practical aspects of differential equations. After a brief overview of the fundamentals of differential equations, this book goes on presenting the principal useful discretization techniques and their theoretical aspects, along with geometrical and physical examples, mainly from continuum mechanics. Considerable chapters are devoted to the development of the techniques of the numerical solution of differential equations and their analysis. The remaining chapters explore the influential invention in computational mechanics-finite elements. Each chapter emphasizes the relationship among the analytic formulation of the physical event, the discretization techniques applied to it, the algebraic properties of the discrete systems created, and the properties of the digital computer.This book will be of great value to undergraduate and graduate mathematics and physics students.
