It is fitting that Book I of the series should be on the subject of finite elements. The finite element method is now well established as an engineering tool with wide application. At the same time is has attracted considerable attention from mathematicians over the last ten years, so that a large body of mathematical theory now exists.


Students and Professor in the Civil Engineering.
