Reviews

@from:F.M. Holly Jr. @qu:...This is, quite simply, a remarkable book. It has admirably achieved its objective as articulated by the author at the opening to the concluding chapter: "The purpose of the present book was to introduce the basics of Godunov-type schemes to the engineering public". The unassuming succinctness, brevity, and clarity of this statement are characteristic of the entire work. ...Once the author has had a chance to catch his breath after the considerable effort devoted to this book, one hopes that he will consider authoring a second edition that could include chapters devoted to practical issues such as incorporation of hydraulic works in channels, and mobile-bed hydraulics, in the context of Godunov-type schemes. @source:Journal of Hydraulic Research
