Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equations—III: Synspade 1975 provides information pertinent to those difficult problems in partial differential equations exhibiting some type of singular behavior. This book covers a variety of topics, including the mathematical models and their relation to experiment as well as the behavior of solutions of the partial differential equations involved. Organized into 16 chapters, this book begins with an overview of elastodynamic results for stress intensity factors of a bifurcating crack. This text then discusses the effects of nonlinearities, such as bifurcation, which occur in problems of nonlinear mechanics. Other chapters consider the equations of changing type and those with rapidly oscillating coefficients. This book discusses as well the effective computational methods for numerical solutions. The final chapter deals with the principal results on G-convergence, such as the convergence of the Green's operators for Dirichlet's and other boundary problems. This book is a valuable resource for engineers and mathematicians.
