The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Department of Computer & Information Sciences involved in mathematically structured programming, similarity and metric search, computer security, software systems, combinatronics and digital health.

The Department also includes the iSchool Research Group, which performs leading research into socio-technical phenomena and topics such as information retrieval and information seeking behaviour.


Review of p and hp-finite element methods. Theory and applications in solid and fluid mechanics

Ainsworth, Mark (2001) Review of p and hp-finite element methods. Theory and applications in solid and fluid mechanics. Mathematics of Computation, 70 (235). pp. 1335-1337. ISSN 0025-5718

The demanding pace of the text would leave many UK graduate students in mathematics trailing in its wake. Exercises are included in the text, ranging from trivial computations to deeper applications of the theory. My only real criticism of the book lies in the number of minor typographical errors and inconsistencies that should have easily been detected by a copy editor. At a cost of $85.00 for 374 pages, I would expect the publisher to produce a far more polished product. Nevertheless, this is a detailed and authoritative account of the theory of hp-version _nite element methods at the end of the 1990s, and provides a much needed reference source for theoreticians in this area.
